Carl Grubbs Jazz Ensemble

Grubbs has crafted a work of considerable color and depth in his Inner Harbor Suite; melodies, counter-melodies, blues elements of call and response, bebop rhythms, Afro-Cuban rhythms and avant-garde elements.  – Howard Mandel, DownBeat Magazine
 
The quartet takes the tonal centers of Trane’s “Giant Steps” as their shared springboard. Grubbs solos first, crafting a highly personalized tribute to the composer through a verbose series of high register note streams . . . his melodically-charged creations of Miles Davis’s “Four” supplies further fodder for spirited blowing and the quartet attacks the bop standard with a voracious improvisatory elán. – Derek Taylor, Cadence Magazine 
 
“Grubbs opened the main show by lifting his alto saxophone and exploding into hot Latin riffs of his composition “Bossa.” His fierce blowing on “Saturn,”one of his signature tunes, was a highlight, and“Barbara Dear” featured tenderly blown harmonies by Grubbs on a tune honoring his wife. – Steve Monroe, Baltimore Jazz Alliance
