This is “comfort food” for the soul, as you really feel an “in the room” intimacy as the trio’s blend
is that of true veterans locked into a groove and having fun.

Glenn Davis let's his splendid compositional skills and purposeful timekeeping speak for themselves on A Different View....A sharp and synchronous quartet that makes listening a pleasure. Jack Bowers -

Glenn has not taken the easy path in just recording jazz classics, as on this Cd he wrote all but one if the compositions. What sets aside Davis' maiden effort is a maturity by it's leader in combining lyrical playing with classy arrangements. Jeff Krow - Audiophile Audition

The N. Glenn Davis Quartet ... A wonderful jazz cd, well recorded with exceptional playing. -

If you dig some straight ahead playing by some cats who know how to make jazz sound like jazz, then A Different View is for you. Joe Lang - Jersey Jazz Newsletter

It's really the material that's the star of Glenn Davis' new 11 track CD... the numbers have the easy charm and accessibility of standards. Anastasia Pantsios - Cleveland Free Times

If You Could See Me Now
Wakin Up Blues

An exciting recording of swinging straight-ahead jazz played by an impressive quintet headed by jazz drummer N. Glenn Davis, featuring alto saxophone legend Phil Woods on several tunes. Also features premier NYC pianist Mark Soskin (15 years with Sonny Rollins), bassist Dean Johnson (10 years with Gerry Mulligan), Jack Schantz (recorded with Oscar Peterson and soloist with Woody Herman), and exciting young saxophonist Dave Sterner.

"This album has a great vibe to it. It features six veteran players who each have a very strong voice of their own getting together to have a great time playing the music of N. Glenn Davis and a couple of standards. Things never get boring, as the songs are somewhat short, and feature many succinct but engaging solos throughout, and there is a good mix of straight ahead swing, Latin grooves, hard bop, blues and ballads."
