Saxophonist Russ Nolan is back with an entertaining work of outstanding musicianship. Call It What You Want is comprised almost exclusively of Nola’s own compositions, with a complimentary nod to Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin. The production is a mix uptempo and ballad numbers, with a definitive Latin influence coursing through the effort. Nolan’s playing, on soprano and tenor sax, is top notch, as is that of his studio mates. Joining Nolan on the project are Mike Eckroth on piano, Daniel Foose on bass, Brian Fishler on drum, Yasuyo Kimura on congas and bata drums and Victor Rendon on timbales, bongos and other percussion. Great interplay for yet another solid recording for Nolan.
