Lucid Dream
Patrick Cornelius

Twice winner of ASCAP’s Young Jazz Composers Award, Patrick Cornelius has devoted the bulk of his second recording to original works. The seven examples given here show a dusky elegance that owes much to Wayne Shorter while retaining a unique identity. But Cornelius also has a wild side. His insistent solos on alto and soprano saxophones occasionally break loose, as on an inspired deconstruction of “Billie’s Bounce.” An agile quintet provides solid support throughout the set.
