“Altschul remains a master drummer and bandleader. Long Tall Sunshine pulls off a delightful paradox: it combines in-your-face vigor with subtlety, probing free improvisations with appealing compositions.” – Michael Ullman, Arts Fuse
“And so this album goes: surprise after surprise…Clearly one of the most exciting jazz recordings ever made!” – Lynn Bayley, Art Music Lounge
On The Long Tall Sunshine, Not Two, reconvenes Altschul’s adventurous group. Three, as those of us who grew up on Schoolhouse Rock will remember, truly is a magic number. It’s enshrined in the name of The 3dom Factor, the astounding trio led by legendary drummer/improviser Barry Altschul for the last decade or so. That sobriquet reflects the vital importance of all three voices in the band: not only Altschul’s powerful, ever-inquisitive drumming, but the tirelessly venturesome saxophone playing of Jon Irabagon and the acrobatic muscularity of bass great Joe Fonda.
