The great and underrated tenor from Brooklyn blew with the kind of Coltrane-like urgency and technique that his Philadelphia-born colleague Michael Brecker also possessed. Along with former Horace Silver Quintet bandmates Tom Harrell on trumpet and Mike Richmond on bass, Berg is joined by his mentor Cedar Walton on piano, veteran drummer Al Foster, and percussionist Sammy Figueroa to record his debut as a leader on the Xanadu label: New Birth. Together they cut a wide stylistic swath on four originals and two well chosen cover tunes.
