Swift To Hear, Slow To Speak by saxophonist Anthony E. Nelson Jr. is a fantastic artistic statement. The project is also an effort built around the artist’s faith and gratitude. Nelson, Jr. has a tone that is powerful and engaging, which accentuates the fine quality of his compositions. Each song on the project is based on particular scriptural biblical passages. The aesthetics and artistry of the work is not at all lost in the message. In addition to Nelson Jr. on tenor and soprano saxes, this production benefits from an outstanding lineup comprised of Brandon McCune on piano, Kenny Davis on bass, Chris Beck on drums, Bruce Williams on alto sax and Josh Evans on trumpet. This is a fantastic musical brew .
