Dan Blake & "The Digging"

The Boston Globe has noted that saxophonist and composer Dan Blake “regards tradition as a welcoming playground best approached with a sense of wonder and adventure,” an attitude he brings to his latest release for Sunnyside Records entitled The Digging, a trio date featuring world-renowned drummer Eric Harland and bassist Dmitry Ishenko. The recording is a follow-up of sorts to the 2012 release The Aquarian Suite (Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records), which was proclaimed by the Boston Phoenix to be “one of the most ridiculously satisfying discs we’ve heard in some time.”
