Review By The Jazz Report,

Nice tunes, nice playing are at the heart of tenor saxophonist Lew Del Gatto's Naxos disc Katewalk. Del Gatto keeps the groove in place without to (sic) many frills allowing the soloist to glide along unencumbered. This is basically a high end blowing session with excellent charts. featuring some tasty B-3 organ from Ron Fuer, spirited trumpet playing from Randy Brecker, trombonist Steve Turre, guitarist Joe Cohn, with the impeccable Victor Lewis on drums.

Review By Joe Grandwilliams,Good Times (New York),August 2000

Tenor saxophonist Del Gatto gives lie to the belief that the instrument is basically a mellow implement, suited to soft deep passages. Sure he finds plenty of places for the familiar voicings, however he is also capable of scathing solos. With a band that defines all star, Del Gatto with Randy Brecker on trumpet and flugelhorn, guitarist Joe Cohn, bassist Chip Jackson, drummer Victor Lewis Steve Turre on trombone and Ron Feuer on keyboards, Del Gatto equally mixes original compositions with the classics. The sound is absolutely alive. The recording was done direct to 2-track, and the engineering is as good as the playing. Solos abound. The project is built around Lewis’s drums, Jackson’s bass and Joe Cohn’s absolutely stellar guitar work. The horns whether in solo or ensemble

reach into the cymbals to throw some lightning among the thunder. Brecker who is decidedly under utilized in this project, is loosed on Caravan. Cohn shows an abundance of chops and speed while never compromising his tone. Turre sets up Del Gatto for a second round with a run of staccato notes. Again here are more solos worth the price of the disc. Needless to say this disc is highly recommended. This is his first venture as a leader. It should be the first of many.
