JazzTimes’ Chris Kelsey commented on Bill Barron Quintet – Live at Cobi’s (SCCD 31570), “ Straightahead tenor players who regularly stretch themselves and break a sweat in the process are too few and far between these days. That's what makes a record by someone like the late Bill Barron so attractive. Barron had no such problems cutting loose. He possessed an original voice-not revolutionary, but unique in its way. Live at Cobi's (Steeplechase) comes from a pair of late '80s concerts Barron gave not long before his death in 1989 at the age of 62. ….. Where are the new Bill Barrons-the mainstreamers who sound like no one but themselves?
In this sequel CD tenor saxophonist Bill Barron (1927-1989) features his younger brother, pianist Kenny Barron.
