"The tenor saxophonist Adam Larson is the sort of jazz musician who gets flagged early on as a promising talent and then hustles to meet every requirement for success. At 25, he’s still forming his identity as an artist, but his third album, “Selective Amnesia” (Inner Circle), suggests that he’s closing in on something perceptive and streamlined. He has a fine rhythm section, with Fabian Almazan on piano, Matthew Stevens on guitar, Matt Penman on bass and Jimmy Macbride on drums. And his compositions are thoughtful, with ample breathing room for any soloists. (They reciprocate with excellent work, especially Mr. Stevens on an anthemic ballad called “Gratitude.”) Mr. Larson’s own improvisations tend to be articulate and brisk, darting up and down his range. This album is a good marker for him, a sign of how far he has come and a new standard for him to beat."- Nate Chinen, New York Times
