After igniting storms of controversy with brilliant forays into Ellingtonia on his first CDM release, Takin' the Duke Out, guitarist Dom Minasi's trio returns with Goin' Out Again. The new CD features stunning interpretations of Miles' All Blues, Monk's Well You Needn't and two classic standards, Autumn Leaves and On Green Dolphin Street. With four extraordinary originals included, Goin' Out Again shows why Dom Minasi is being compared to Coltrane, Dolphy and Cecil Taylor as THE premier innovator on jazz guitar.

."..Minasi shines through with a fresh and personal style that touches on the past, yet delivers compelling notions for the future" . Jay Collins Cadence Magazine
"A guitarist who weaves musical strings in a variety of styles from Avant-garde to Free jazz, with a hard rock mentality; Minasi and trio are truly expressive and free".

Midway between abstract experimentation and standards recreation, Minasi is using his plectrum like a shovel to carve out his own niche. This session should appeal to audiences who appreciate either of those genres. Ken Waxman ..Jazz Weekly.Com
" Dom Minasi doesn't disappoint on Goin' Out Again. Rather, he reassures his fast-growing base of enthuasiasts that this is a guitar trio like no other recording today. " Don Williamson.. Jazzreview.com
"Dom Minasi, for years out of circulation, is back out on the scene. Jazz and jazz guitar are better for it."
