Charles Pillow is one of the more in-demand reed players on the New York Jazz scene today
Pillow has fashioned something genuinely new and ravishingly beautfiul. He has remarkable command of oboe, soprano sax, bass clarinet and penny whistle. He practically achieves musical nirvana. Simply one of the best releases of this or any other year. (In This World)
His poise and sense of solo construction are indications of exceptional musicianship.
He has an ear for original melodies and sophisticated harmonies, as well as terrifc playing on tenor and soprano saxes and oboe.
---Paul DeBarros, Seattle Times
Curents is a showcase for his formidable compositional and improvisational talents.
Impressive oboe playing
Soundscape, Ethereal, Impressionistic...Pillow is as versatile as anyone recording today
