Glenn Davis let's his splendid compositional skills and purposeful timekeeping speak for themselves on A Different View....A sharp and synchronous quartet that makes listening a pleasure.
This is a highly accomplished debut, all original material , and played with a kind of easy confidence that only comes from regular gigging together.
As mainstream jazz drummers go, N. Glenn Davis plays with the strong, controlled, steady hands of a blackjack dealer, and as the experienced, savvy veteran he is....Except for two standards, all the other tracks are composed and arranged by the drummer, setting him apart from most other timekeepers of the music.
