5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Sound and composition November 13, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have heard Silverman live several times, and own both his CDs, and confidently can state him as my very favorite artist. Anyone interested in Silverman should start with this excellent album.
Silverman plays classic Jazz. Unlike artists like Jean Luc Ponty, Silverman uses an external pickup (a microphone) rather than a magnectic pickup (like an electric guitar). This allows Silverman to be heard while keeping the true sound of the instrument. Silverman does use an electric guitar in his group, which is also played in a very powerful, very Jazz-oriented style, focusing on distinct individual notes rather than jarring chords or "shredding." Silverman also keeps a fine swing throughout the CD, although Blue Moods is not as laid-back as his earlier CD Swing Shift.
Antoine's sound is fantastic. Those familiar with jazz violin will be surprised how far Silverman has managed to distance himself from the characterisitc whine of the instrument. Instead, he has developed a dark, rich tone that retains a beautiful and emotional "edge." The sound is more akin to a cello, except in the violin range of pitches. This shines through on all the pieces, especially on the final track, "Big Stoop." Silverman also makes good use of the ability of the violin to produce two notes at once. He throws in a second note exactly where it wil have the most impact, while not overusing this technique. The effect will make your breath catch in your throat.
Silverman is an excellent violinist, but he is an even better composer. His three self-written pieces, "Kika" "Bee's Bounce" and "Big Stoop" bring out his sound the best of any of the tracks, and also highlight a very original approach to Jazz. While these pieces are very fresh, any Jazz fan will be instantly comfortable with them. Silverman has innovated within the traditions of Jazz rather than incorporating non-Jazz elements.

This guy is amazing. I can't believe more people don't know of him. If you like jazz violin like Regina Carter or Stephane Grapelli, you will love this cd!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great swinging mainstream jazz...very listenable. June 3, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Antoine knows how to swing and so does his rhythm section. This was a cd I found out of nowhere, and thanks to Amazon's listening samples, I found it and love it. The recording is also well engineered and sounds great. If you love Stephane Grappelli with an updated recording and sound, this is it.
