Outside The Line is an outstanding showcase of bassist-composer Peter Brendler’s talents as a writer, arranger and musician. On this, his debut as a leader, the songs and performances brim with mesmerizing intensity and freshness. The tones range from driving grooves to melancholy reflections. Brendler composed all but the nicely arranged Lou Reed tune. Also making this effort go, are the skills Peter Evans on trumpet, Rich Perry on tenor saxophone and Vinnie Sperrazza on drums. The whole thing clicks for a fantastic production.
