Dennis Mitcheltree: Brooklyn

Dennis Mitcheltree plays the tenor saxophone with steady self-assurance. His rather intricate machinations spin out of his horn most naturally. On Brooklyn he proves a Coltrane acolyte in tone and phrasing. Mitcheltree’s individuality comes through during delicate and quietly introspective passages, where he mulls over meditative qualities of chord changes, and his harmonies are clearly inspired by modern times.
