info 

The 10 songs on "Beloved," alto saxophonist Kris Allen's new quartet album featuring tenor Frank Kozyra, bassist Lucques Curtis and drummer Jonathan Barber, are studies in ambiguity and clarity, mixing spirituality with cool precision. This is Allen's second album as a leader, and the follow-up to 2012's "Circle House." On head melodies, or scattered through a song's formal structure, Allen and Kozyra weave unison lines, follow each other at close intervals, play against one another in loose counterpoint, or else stretch out alone or together into expansive spaces, above Curtis and Barber's unwavering swing.
