Trombonist/composer David White returns with the second recording of his amazing 17-piece orchestra. The Chase highlights the dexterity of White as a writer and that of he and his ensemble as players. The writing is truly engaging and the delivery of the material is impeccable. White’s work here shows the capabilities of a larger musician base in a modern context. The tunes are mix of the mellow toned and big brassy numbers, all written by the band’s leader. The unit features Pablo Masis on trumpet, Andrew Gould and Omar Daniels on alto saxophones, Sam Dillon on tenor saxophone and Ryan Cavan on drums.  It’s great to find talented artists keeping this genre of jazz alive and White does it exceptionally well.
