Album Notes
Don's group FOREmen is a constant exploration of improvised music in an instrumental quartet format. Releasing his first record as a leader on the Freshsound label, the music is comprised of some pop songs along with Don's original compositions. "I wanted to create a group that dug into the depths of melody and improvisation to a point that would not only inspire the players, but touch listeners from all sorts of backgrounds."

FOREmen are: Don Peretz - drums & cymbals, Russ Johnson - trumpet, Christof Knoche - reeds, Dave Ambrosio - bass

"Drummer Don Peretz is onto something here as he pilots this New York City-based quartet through an expansive musical aura where improvisation and compositional structure attain a happy medium."

... "Peretz's compositions boast sustaining melody lines, often coated with prophetic musical statements. (A recommended pick for 2005...)"

-Glenn Astarita (All About

"His music is full of likable melodies and energetic play."

..."the drummer's quartet fronts a friendlier, more accessible side, and Peretz brings a real pop sensibility to his music."

"Late on Foremen "A Theme" comes on like a blast of urban cacophony"...

- Jazz Times

"This group [Foremen] goes one step beyond groups..."

- Cadence Magazine
