Album Notes
Drum phenom Gene Lake, son of World Saxophone Quartet founder, Oliver Lake, has worked with Steve Coleman, acid/punk/jazz group, the Screaming Headless Torsos, the high priestess of funkadelica, M'Shell Ndege Ocello and has toured worldwide with Marcus Miller and David Sanborn.

Electric bassist Mat Garrison, son of Jimmy, bassist for Coltrane, Garrison is definetely one of, if not the best, jazz bassist on the scene today. His past employers would surely agree as they comprise a formidible group: Gary Burton, Bob Moses, Betty Carter, Lyle Mays, Steve Coleman, Gil Evans, Joe Zawinul, John Mclaughlin, John Scofield, Mike Stern, Joni Mictchell and Chaka Kahn.

Newbie Nat Janoff, without the impressive curriculum vitae of his band members lets his playing do the talking for him. A jazz guitarist (read: former rocker) delivers both fluid bop and searing fusion effortlessly on this album. Composer of all tracks, Nat Janoff has the talent, both as a player and a writer, to go the distance in the jazz world.


Review 1: "...Janoff isn't John McLaughlin; he has his own style. but if you like John McLaughlin, chances are you will like Janoff."
Source of review 1: Walter Kolosky, 2004

Review 2: "...Any 29 year old (Nat Janoff) that can hang with this duo, let alone lead the date, has transitively proven himself worthy of attention...Here's hoping more sessions like this keep getting put out there."
Source of review 1: Phil DiPietro, June 2000 fusion review

Review 3: ...killer guitarists beyond the A-list like...Nat Janoff."
Source of review 2: Phil DiPietro, Bass Frontiers Magazine, Vol. 8, #1

Review 4: "...a nice collection by a group that knows its way around and delivers in a most satisfying manner!"

This is a cool suprise
I bought this CD because I'm a huge Matthew Garrison fan. It is a cool suprise to discover two other great musicians in the offing. Gene Lake is a monster and I will be keeping an ear out to Nat Janoff's career as well. He has a unique approach to the instrument.


Get ready for some serious chops
This trio is absolutely amazing. The rythem section is rock solid, and beyond tasteful. Nat Janoff is probably the hottest, freshest guitar player out there, and he is brilliant on this album. Words don't do them justice...just get the album, you'll understand.

Straight Up
I heard Nat by chance as the opener for Mark Knopfler and was blown away. He had edge, enthusiasm and I was amazed at the how he really pushed his playing. He sounded something like a cross between Warren Haynes and Wes Montgomery. Give "Horizon" a listen. Pick up an album or catch a show. This artist is the real deal.

best new album in a long time
Gene Lake kicks serious a** on this album. I never heard of Nat Janoff before this album so I am surprised at how good he is. This is real exciting stuff and I hope to hear more of it.
