Cover picture for the articleFor his 20th album as a leader, 60-year-old alto/soprano saxophonist and keyboardist Kenny Garrett delivers an accomplished set of tunes that manages to look both backward and forward. Most of Sounds From The Ancestors showcases Garrett’s alto playing, which is marked by an expressiveness and assuredness that we’ve come to expect from this revered jazz veteran. His tart tone has just a hint of rasp, and he has a knack for doling out screams and wails that lend the music enhanced emotional heft.
