\"Dan has mastered a wonderful rich tone that fills the ear and satisfies the soul!\"
—Jazz and Blues Review
The West Coast press on Southern California resident Dan St. Marseille has spent much time name-checking Pres, Hawk, Mobley and Getz, emphasizing the \"classic\" nature of his playing. I also hear some of the rhythmic swagger of Von freeman, as well as the long lines and rich tonal quality found in Dewey Redman. What this all adds up to is one of the most distinctive tenor voices out of the \"mainstream\" that I’ve had the pleasure of encountering recently. [St.] Marseille’s attention to dynamics and tonal manipulation, as well as to what’s going on around him, gives a lot of diversity to his improvising.
