Midwest Record reviews Ken Fowser “Standing Tall”…







midwest record

If you’re any kind of a jazzbo, you know Fowser’s name but you’ll probably be surprised this is his first date as a leader. Swinging that sax like he was born holding it, Fowser isn’t letting grass grow under his feet as he delivers a pure, classic New York sound that can easily take you back to days you weren’t around for in the first place on a set of originals that aren’t filler. Engaging because he’s playing without affectation, he’s the real deal that knows from whence modern sax came from with Four Brothers as his starting point merging lessons learned with vision clear. Muscular, solid playing that makes this a winner throughout.
