Zane Massey's debut as a leader, Brass Knuckles recieved much critical acclaim from all the major jazz publications including DownBeat, JazzTimes, Cadence...Bob Blumenthal's review in the Boston Globe said, "Brass Knuckles is a powerful debut disc and a major step beyond his work in Ronald Shannon Jackson's Decoding Society. Massey is the son of the late and neglected trumpeter/composer Cal Massey, and he literally grew up surrounded by John Coltrane, Lee Morgan and others. He has developed a big, gruff tenor sax sound, and a concept of great continuity and rhythmic momentum." Safe to Imagine is another stirring emotional offering from an important voice of 90's jazz.
