Logan Richardson

Shift

Saxophonist Logan Richardson's third album is a cohesive collection of structurally solid tracks that revel in internal freedom. Pianist Jason Moran shines a harmonic spotlight into the recesses of "Creeper"; guitarist Pat Metheny writhes like a live wire on "Untitled," delivering a master class in tonal potential; and Richardson's warm alto sax probes and propels throughout an outstanding communal effort consisting of eight originals, two brief "interludes," and a slow, ominous cover of Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven." Bassist Harish Raghavan and drummer Nasheet Waits lend subtle elasticity throughout.
