On the album, John Clark: I Will, John Clark demonstrates loudly, clearly, and beautifully why he is not only a brilliant Jazz composer, improviser, and orchestrator, but the first-choice French horn player of such legendary musicians as Gil Evans, Billy Joel, B. B. King, McCoy Tyner, Sting, and countless others. The music encompasses orchestral quintet arrangements and smaller group interplay. As always, John Clark's musical genius shines though, provoking personal introspection amongst listeners and critics lost in the depth of his signature manner.


"4 Stars… command of a forbidding instrument that speaks a

 solo language rarely heard in jazz…[ Clark] sets ambitious goals…

He showcases his gifts as soloist, composer, orchestrator, and

instigator. . . . He sets every stage and his solos are revelatory."

- Down Beat Magazine


"Clark has conjured up a mercurial, exciting set. The CD runs

the gamut musically - from the ravishing, leisurely title track . . .

to a feisty take on Sonny Rollins' 'Airegin' and a deeply soulful

rendition of 'My One and Only Love'."                        -  Jazziz


The music on the album varies from the hard-driving rendition of John Coltrane's India and the humor of Bad Attitude, which shows off Clark's profound rhythmic and harmonic soul, to passionate ballads like the title track, I Will.  With this release from the Postcards label, entitled John Clark: I Will (also available on CD), the French Horn Jazz maestro showcases his intuitive and visceral soloing, as well as his eclectic taste and harmonious gifts as a player, leader, and composer of a music happily unrestrained by stylistic definition.


Critic's Choice "This newest set from progressive jazzman John

Clark reaffirms his distinctive and engaging talent – and not just

 in [the] somewhat narrow filed of jazz French horn players."

- Billboard


"John Clark . . . shows here his mastery of the horn in settings

 inventive and varied . . . rich sounds . . . The high luster on these

 recordings is far more than just an illusion of depth."

- JazzTimes Magazine
