III Modern Drummer Feb 2013 Review

Review not on-line. Here it is:

“Not based in melody yet melodious, not based in strict forms but smartly structured, the compositions on drummer/leader Harris Eisenstadt’s Canada Day III (Songlines) take surprising arcs. Eisenstadt’s playing – orchestrated, colorful, airy yet propelling – flows from a composer’s mind. The richly timbred quintet Canada Day includes vibes, trumpet, tenor sax, and bass, and each instrumentalist solos judiciously, serving the ensemble momentum. Vibraphonist Chris Dingman is particularly crafty shading harmonic tension and release. An engaging left-of-center pleasure from an artist to watch.” – Jeff Potter
