ONE is saxophonist Stacy Dillard’s debut disc for the New York-based Smalls Records, wherein he leads a combo of electric guitar, electric piano, bass, and drums. ONE manages to cover a few distinct stylistic bases--hard bop, post bop, the early days of fusion (circa 1968/’69)--and yet is a solid, consistently good listen. Dillard plays soprano and tenor saxophones, but plays mostly tenor throughout.

His sound is big, brawny, and surging in the manner of tenor masters Sonny Rollins and Joe Lovano. Each track (six minutes per piece, on average) gives everyone a chance to shine without any extraneous noodling.
