First point of note I have to say about this new CD is this: It s the kind of recording that makes me feel like the state Jazz is indeed alive and well.
Here is a group of very well seasoned players who bring everything they ve ever listened to into the moment. Throughout the recording the songs, arrangements and harmonies are extremely well thought out. Much detail has been given to the harmonies used in the main theme of each composition, as well as the comp harmonies used to support the soloist. There is a unique combination of instrumentation used which creates beautiful textures throughout the CD.
I love the drummer on this project. Brad Gibson has a wonderful way of communicating with each player in the solo sections complimenting and supporting them in a very subtle way which is, quite frankly, hard to describe.
The sound of the drums is lovely a nice live sound without being too roomy sounding in the mix. The mix on the recording throughout is very nice. Again, the harmonies on the main theme of each song are subtle, so my compliments to the chef in what may have been a tricky mix. There is no weak link in the special group of players brought together for this session.
Four-Color Heroes is certainly a recording that deserves to be heard by every fan of Jazz. It s unique, contemporary and highly original.
Add this one to your collection to be sure.
