Marshall Gilkes is reviewed in the January edition of Cadence Magazine

Trombonist  MARSHALL GILKES’s backed by the WDR big band turns in its tour de force on ALWAYS FORWARD [Alternate Side Records asr 010]. This undated recording, taken off Cologne broadcasts, features 9 solid Gilkes originals, including a three part “Denali Suite” and “Easy To Love”[70:25]. Gilkes takes most of the solos but not all and the liners identify who solos on each piece. These state bands more often than not do a great job and this is no exception.
