Critics' Praise for “The World Is Not Your Home"


A superb piece of work... Congrats to David and the band for making a truly great recording, one that defines what jazz is today.
- Maurice Hogue, CKUW-FM
Top flight musicians... a fusion masterpiece!
-AllAboutJazz
The World Is Not Your Home is an astonishing piece of work. Perhaps the world has now caught up with David Rogers.
- Brian Morton, co-author, Penguin Guide to Jazz
4 Stars. Rogers' saxophone work and overall outlook bring to mind no less than John Coltrane during the latter's period of experimenting with Indian music tonalities... like the master, Rogers is a relentless seeker with an eye beyond borders. Working with five superb musicians... [they] explore freely and wildly, coalescing single-mindedly at that place where it all comes together to form something fresh and exciting. Each track here is a world unto its own, precisely, one would imagine, what Rogers had in mind.
- Jeff Tamarkin, AllMusicGuide
Drawing heavily from the melodic and rhythmic traditions of Ghana and Cuba, Rogers and his Detroit-based crew alternate slippery, progressive jazz themes with extended jaunts through exotically folksy grooves. The whole set is fine, but “Oboo Ketua Nyom" steals the show, setting Rogers against a pair of gyile xylophones for an ecstatic, 11-minute celebration of life.
- Jazz Times
Rogers is the kind of saxophonist that someone like the late Michael Brecker would be proud of, someone willing to test their limits by playing without them. This is not only a powerful jazz statement, but a musical statement, one of the best to come out this year.
- John Book, Music for America

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
