A graduate of the University of North Texas's legendary jazz program and an alumnus of such A-list ensembles as the Toshiko Akiyoshi Big Band, the Mel Lewis Orchestra, and the small combos of Jack McDuff and Eddie Palmieri, saxophonist and composer Snidero is no newcomer. He spins out wonderfully clean, inventive lines. His transparent sound and rapid execution impress without detracting from the musical thought. He never resorts to aimless scribbling, even at the quickest tempos, while his ballad interpretations are filled with exquisitely oblique lines. This, the saxophonist's second release for Savant, presents a unique ensemble, with no keyboard of any kind, the rhythm section of Paul Gill, bass and Billy Drummond, drums propel the proceedings forward while fret-master Paul Bollenback lays down the changes.
