Music Review: Jazz My Soul - Jazz Explorers Play the Music of Tim Duffycategories: Music, Jazz
Author: Jazz Explorers
Label: Rhythm Dynamics
Something New and DifferentThis CD has performances by some well known players like George Cables, Dave Liebman, Carmen Lundy, Cecil McBee, Sonny Fortune, Billy Hart, Andrew Cyrille to name a few, along with some more contemporary artists like the Uptown Horns, Kim Stone, and Randy Chavez. The writers Tim Duffy and Reed McRoberts have come up with some lovely original ballads, "Autumn" and "Only Human" which are performed by Carmen Lundy - her performances are just exquisite.
The instrumentals are an interesting combination of straight ahead and newer jazz ideas with Mo' Trane's funky groove and horn hits while George Cables piano mastery just shimmers through on "In Memoriam", "Elvin Jones", "Mystique and Our Father, Pt 2". This album is rich in musical ideas, the more one listens, the more one can find.
