ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Whosoever (Power Cosmic Records) is noted composer, and percussionist Chris Massey's second album as a band leader following his Downbeat and JazzTimes reviewed debut album Vibrainium (Spectra Jazz). With his group The NJP featuring Adam Larson (tenor sax), Benny Benack III (trumpet), Willerm Delisfort (piano) and Chris Talio (bass) they explore both post and hard bop elements of the jazz genre though varied original compositions and arrangements of standards providing a cutting edge sound steeped in tradition.


"Straight out of Art Blakey and Jeff Watts; Chris Massey loves a propulsive beat and knows how to sustain tension. "
- James Hale, DownBeat Magazine

"A powerhouse drummer-bandleader in the tradition of Art Blakey and Jeff "Tain" Watts"
- Bill Milkowski, JazzTimes Magazine

"For those who have an emphasis on the drums will love the way this guy plays, sometimes playing busy like an Elvin Jones but always dedicated in knowing how intense or delicate to play, like an Art Blakey or Brian Blade."
- John Book, This is Books Music

"Massey demonstrates a take-no-prisoners attitude and a willingness to explore different avenues of music with great attention to detail and a good balance between explosive, raw energy and musical restraint."- Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

"Musically, Massey's influences reside firmly in the advanced hardbop of the Blue Note Sixties, another common ground with (Wayne) Shorter. The cerebral connotation in the title and another commonality with Shorter comes through in Massey's clever compositions and arrangements."
- Derek Taylor, Master of a Small House
