On paper Al Foster's resume as a supporting artist reads better than most other jazz drummers. He's recorded albums with Dexter Gordon, Art Pepper, Frank Morgan, Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner, among a plethora of others. Chances are, those who aren't familiar with his name have heard him somewhere, and for the first time since 2002, they can hear him on Inspirations And Dedications as a band leader. With its 66-minute runtime divided into 13 tracks, the disc is lengthy without becoming bloated. Foster and Birnbaum condense the drummer's 1997 composition "Brandyn" into a brief duet prelude to "Our Son," a grief-soaked elegy for the child he lost in 2017. Though these two songs comprise under four minutes of the album's runtime, they serve as an emotional counterbalance to the rest of Inspirations and Dedications.
