SegmentsJohn Hagen (Tenor Saxophones), Denman Maroney (Piano), Mark Dresser (Bass), Shanir Blumenkranz (Bass), Gerry Hemingway (Drums), Todd Capp (Drums)A professional musician since the early 1970s and a former student of a number of people, ranging from Jimmy Cheatham and Randy Sandke to Warne Marsh and Bill Dixon, it's surprising that this is Mr. Hagen's first release under his own leadership in 54 years. And in listening to the 15 little gems that make up this work, the surprises keep coming. This is a saxophonist who will draw in the listener with his emotive, logically constructed, and powerful statements. Fifteen cuts: a marvel in concise statements and, while unknown, not undeserving of your attention. Art‚Äînot hype.

Everything (ensemble work, solo dynamics, the concept of the musical work) comes together in excellent fashion on a recording that Mr. Fonda states "...was one of the highlights of my musical life" and which the producer calls "...a most enjoyable evening."
