*2022 stock* "Saxophone quartets can be an acquired taste, especially if their members are content playing supper-time jazz. However, Rova’s commitment to pushing forward, and challenging themselves and their audiences accounts for much of their perseverance. That, and talent. Their latest recording, In Transverse Time (Les Disques Victo), finds the quartet in meticulous harmony, with each player taking a measured approach to their solos. The Quartet’s members play multiple horns, but each settles into one primary instrument: Jon Raskin’s deep baritone holds steady while Bruce Ackley’s horn shimmers in tandem with the inventive brilliance of soprano virtuoso Steve Lacy. Ochs’ soulful tenor is unmistakable, and Steve Adams’ alto is fresh and bouncy. The whole recording is a musical journey through a wilderness of whistling reeds, but the 24 minute finale, “Hidden in Ochre,” lands listeners back at home after a wonderful whirlwind of sound." - Omar Khalid
