Press Excerpts

"He is a consummate artist who has a very unique sound on the tenor and soprano saxophones."

Paul Evoskevich, Saxophone Journal


"Faulk plays some truly impressive tenor and soprano sax. The man's tone, musical ideas, and compositional style are out of sight!….This album contains some outstanding creative and imaginative compositions and arrangements done with impeccable and honest taste. ****-1/2"

Stephen Fratallone, Jazz Connection Magazine


"Faulk has recorded and played alongside jazz legends J.J. Johnson and Wayne Shorter, and it’s easy to hear why as he plays with grace and proficiency...." ...(I)nterprets ten potent originals with memorable performances."

All About Jazz


"Couldn't have agreed more with the composer's opinions projected through his horn." [translation]

Swing Journal (Japan)


"...the warmest soprano sound I've ever heard."

Bob Protzman, Saint Paul Press


“...Faulk writes tunes that are new, yet strangely familiar; he’s as good as it gets in mainstream jazz... his material has been recorded by artists including Benny Golson, Rufus Reid and James Spaulding. What they see in Faulk’s writing is what we hear: clever invention within a mainstream context; melodies that invade the mind; and changes that encourage inventive improvisation. [Faulk] proves that mainstream jazz can still be original and inventive."

John Kelman, jazzreview.com


“[Faulk’s] solos are absorbing and eloquent, he plays with a great deal of passion..."

Ron Saranich, Cosmic


“Dan's quartet plays his own compositions [Dan Faulk Songbook, vol. 1] exclusively--and these are beautiful developed works... attention is given [to] clarity and to the beauty of each played note."

Leonid Auskern, Jazz Quad
