About the album

Thirty-year-old tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger's debut on Criss Cross in a pianoless context with trumpeter Jason Palmer and bassist Kim Cass, who record here with the brilliant drummer Dan Weiss for the first time on this occasion.

The hour-long program consists of nine Preminger originals. Each evokes a different mood and ambiance with strong melodies and percolating grooves that provoke unfailingly cohesive, thematic improvisations by Preminger and Palmer.


Preminger, just 30, has recorded numerous critically acclaimed albums and is steadily listed as one of the best tenor saxophonists by critics and readers on the annual Downbeat Poll. Two new recordings were released in 2016, including an all-ballads date on the French vinyl label, Newvelle Records, and a recording inspired by Delta Mississippi Blues musicians, Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground. On Inauguration Day, 2017, Preminger will release his 7th album as a bandleader, Meditations On Freedom, as a musical protest at ominous political developments in America.

Born in 1986, Preminger grew up in Canton, Connecticut. Preminger released his debut album, Dry Bridge Road, just after his 21st birthday and was named Debut of the Year in the Village Voice Critics Poll. Preminger’s second and third albums as a leader came in 2011 and 2013 while signed to the Palmetto Records label. The Boston Globe says ,“Tenor saxophonist Preminger – a master with standards and ballads, as well as an adventurous composer … Preminger lets a little Ornette into his sound to join Coltrane and Rollins.” The saxophonist has performed on key stages from the United States to Europe and Australia, and he has played and/or recorded with the likes of Billy Hart, Dave Holland, John Patitucci, Fred Hersch, Dave Douglas, Rob Garcia, Joe Lovano, Victor Lewis, John and Bucky Pizzarelli, Cecil McBee, George Cables, Roscoe Mitchell, and Dr. Eddie Henderson.

'Genuinity' is an album that literally demands repetitive listening, because you discover something new again and again in this surprising music. An authentic sound within a world full of copy cats.
