TIME FRAMES Reviews:
"Michael Waldrop skillfully explores the concentric circles of classical percussion and jazz..."- MICHAEL AMBROSINO, www.33third.org
"Easy to appreciate, hard to categorize and impossible to ignore, Time Frames is a testament to one exceptional percussionist's determination, skill and creative vision".- DAN BILAWSKY All About Jazz
ORIGIN SUITE review:
"Origin Suite accomplishes what so few contemporary big band albums are able to: It projects an intimacy, even as it opens vista upon vista and layer upon layer." JEFF TAMARKIN
TIME WITHIN ITSELF review:
"..this auspicious debut bristles with a visceral post-Weather Report energy that brings big bands into new light."- BILL MILKOWSKI
"A record that climbed the Jazz Charts pretty quickly, it’s not surprising when you consider the strong fusion and post-bop components to Waldrop’s inimitable formula...... delivered with sublime precision"- TAKE EFFECT
A critically acclaimed percussion CD featuring Waldrop on marimba, drumset and vibraphone, features compositions by Waldrop and others including famed marimbist Gordon Stout. Features Jose Rossy and Brad Dutz on percussion, Marko Djordjevic-drums and Ivana Cojbasic and Steve Snyder on piano.
