Album Notes
From a review of "Let Go" by Nick Mondello of All About Jazz:

"Kase is in utter command of his horn and his creativity throughout the entire date. He's an intelligent, inspiring improviser. There's no pianist on the album. However, guitarist Collado, bassist Ander Garcia and drummer, Miguel Benito provide robust harmonic and rhythmic platforms for Kase's highly lyrical improvisational explorations. Their respective solos and interplay are also superior and importantly, in the textural format of these pieces. All fits well with the leader's compositions.

"A standout on the album is Kase's slick "Roweena," a savvy Monk-ish rendering of a 12-tone row. You'd never know that the tune is just that. "Courting Disaster" has the trumpeter and his crew moving quicker, then slower over the stop time. "Out of Towner" salutes Ralph Towner with a scampering melody. The title tune is a two-toned repetitive motif leading into Kase's beautiful melodic offering and Collado's inviting stretching out. The exotic and quirky-melodied "Puddle Jumper" and beautifully elegiac "For Ken Wheeler" close the session out with the same beauty as all prior.

"Let Go offers a fascinating near-hour of colors, textures—and artistry. Do take the title literally and enjoy."
