MEILANA GILLARD - 'DAY ONE' RELEASED OCT 2008
NIR FELDER: GUITAR SAM BARSH: RHODES MARCOS VARELA: BASS TYSHAWN SOREY: DRUMS MG: TENOR & SOPRANO SAXOPHONES, FLUTE, BASS CLARINET "Surprisingly and delightfully, her tenor tone is close to that of Shorter, Stan Getz and even Dexter Gordon, owing less to the 1960’s Coltrane influence than many of her better known contemporaries." "...Semisweet, Red Sky, and Identity have a soulful, post-Miles, Wayne Shorter feel, in which Gillard’s and the band’s solos show a mature sense of restraint.
