A great review of Rudresh’s Kinsmen was published in The New York Times today. Written by Ben Ratliff, the review opens with the high praise of “There’s no groove I’ve heard quite like the one on “Ganesha…”, moves on to call the music “… really something…” and describes Rudresh as ” (having) internalized Charlie Parker’s ballad tone, and some of his hustling phrasing and his harmonic ideas from post-Coltrane saxophonists like Michael Brecker and Steve Coleman.” It’s always nice to be appreciated by your home town paper. It’s a little special when it’s the New York Times.
