About the album

On his Criss Cross leader debut, Transitions, guitarist David Gilmore pays tribute to recently deceased masters Bobby Hutcherson, Toots Thielemans and Victor Bailey, the legendary trumpeter Woody Shaw, and living elders Annette Peacock and Hermeto Pascoal, by interpreting their music along with two original compositions.

Joined by a top-shelf New York quartet comprising tenor saxophonist Mark Shim, pianist Victor Gould, bassist Carlo DeRosa and drummer E.J. Strickland (vibraphonist Bill Ware plays on Hutcherson's "Farallone" ; harmonicist Gregoire Maret plays on Thieleman's "Bluesette"), Gilmore navigates both the acoustic and plugged-in spaces with equal fluency, showcasing his lovely sound, improvisational prowess and focused intention within an array of stylistic formats. 

A glimpse at Gilmore's distinguished discography (it includes four prior leader records, and consequential sideman stints with -- to name a short list -- Steve Coleman, Wayne Shorter, and Meshell Ndegeocello, as well as more recent Criss Cross dates with Donald Edwards [Criss 1365; Criss 1386] and Boris Kozlov [Criss 1389]), gives a sense of the breadth and accomplishment of this bracing recital.
