What people are saying about Inner Flights
"Sure, saxophonist Benjamin Drazen can be calm and graceful when he wants to, but more often than not, Drazen takes to the skies in spectacularly soaring flights; With Inner Flights, Benjamin Drazen has created a complete and lasting work of meaning that's an early contender for best debut album of 2011."
-Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz
"This isn't just one of the most fascinating jazz albums of the year, it's one of the most fascinating albums of the year, period."
"New York Saxophonist Benjamin Drazen doesn't waste any time letting a listener know what his musical intent is all about. From the opening moments of Inner Flights, the fiery alto and soprano saxophonist swings unrepentantly with blistering lines and a bold Jackie McLean-inspired sounds."
-John Vincent Baron, Jazz Review
"It is easy to make comparisons to other great soprano saxophonists such as Dave Liebman-I trust this is not a comparison to which Drazen objects."
-Skip Spratt, Sax Shed
"On Inner Flights, Drazen and his swinging cohorts deliver on all fronts. It’s a head-turning debut from a talented and extremely capable new voice."
-Andrew Lienhard, All About Jazz
