“Mullen’s sax is urgent, intense, and ultra-expressive….maintains an ever-present sassiness about it throughout the album. The melodies are easy to get your head around, and you can truly appreciate the depth of his experience as he wails through runs that demonstrate his feel and love of what he does. In a word, Mahoney’s Way is definitely worth your time. Mahoney’s Way is a refreshing album of fluid, racing sax solos and tight rhythms. …The searing, soaring sax work walks arm-in-arm with the magnificently harmonious backing vocals.The album features such notables as eclectic guitarist/composer Marc Ribot, composer/producer/

“Dave Mullen on tenor and soprano saxes comes equally from the David Sanborn and Gato Barbieri schools of phrasing and rhythmic pulse, and he has a melodic sensibility on a par with Stan Getz as a young musician.”
-Thom Jurek All Music Guide (AMG)
….”He’s paid attention to a wide swath of records from the sax greats, learned the lessons without regurgitating them. A sparkling debut that’s well worth your attention.”
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
“Mahoney’s Way” is an exception, for what I’ve had to get used to. A wonderful project that includes most titles written by Mullen and an excellent re-make of Stevie Wonder’s “As”. Some of the titles I prefer are the up tempo “Flip It”, “Chase Away Rain” and I love the “Like Rashaan” and it’s apparent that Dave has been influence by some of the best. A great CD that could change the direction of modern jazz.”
