Alarm review by Scott Morrow

Fight the Big Bull: Dying Will Be Easy (CF 108)
The brain child of jazz guitarist and songwriter Matt White, Fight the Big Bull is equal parts a compelling standalone venture and homage to legends of the genre. The four songs on Dying Will Be Easy were composed and arranged by White, but his instrument typically isn’t the focus as influences from Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus come through. The distorted brass slide on the opening and title track steals the early spotlight, and the rest of the brass and woodwind section — more than half of the nonet — carries the load for much of the remainder.
