5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully balanced May 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
What a discovery! This is a beautifully balanced record by Brooklyn-based drummer/composer Allison Miller and her ultra-talented band, Boom Tic Boom (Myra Melford, Jenny Scheinman, and Todd Sickafoose plus guests Ara Anderson, Steve Bernstein, Erik Friedlander, and Rachel Friedman). She manages to combine gorgeous melodic lyricism with joyfully hyperkinetic free-leaning compositions without the record sounding like a grab bag. I think that the unifying factor in these tracks is their overt emotional quality. And the emotional range is very broad from the aching anticipation of Waiting to the skittering agitation of The Itch. Miller is a highly versatile, inventive drummer and it's a pleasure to hear her play, but this is very much a band record with superb interaction, particularly among the rhythmic core trio. On the track Once, singer Rachel Friedman creates a pop-jazz gem that leaves me hoping for more collaborations between these two. This is the kind of record that you should play to your musically adventurous friends who want to know what contemporary jazz sounds like. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST GO OUT AND BUY IT --YOU WON'T REGRET IT September 30, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
MILLER, Allison. No Morphine, No Lilies. Foxhaven. 2013. $12.72. AM's Boom Tic Boom: AM, dr; Myra Melford, p; Jenny Scheinman, viol; Todd Sickafoose, b. Guests: Steven Bernstein, slide tpt; Ara Anderson, tpt; Erik Friedlander, cello; Rachel Friedman, voc.

Wow! What a group this is! Boom Tic Boom is essentially drummer Allison Miller's quartet augmented by whatever musicians she needs to color the individual pieces they play. Eight out the eleven compositions are by Miller, one by pianist Melford (a real bear of a musician), one by someone I don't know, and the last, a vocal, lyrics and melody by singer Rachel Freidman in the one weak cut of an exceptionally strong album. It's senseless to go over the album cut by cut. Suffice it to say that the cuts are interesting, exciting, and, a decided asset, varied in approach, melody, solos, harmonies and rhythm. This is a really superior album.

Miller is an exciting drummer. On the basis of this album, she's comfortable playing everything from boom chick a boom rhythms to back beast to pulseless avant garde accents, and she does them all in musically satisfying and approachable ways. Her drum solos don't intrude, are interesting to listen to, actually they're delightful, and for all her obvious talent, she doesn't approach the drums as though she has to show she can play all of them in a single solo. Actually, she is a very sly performer, and all the more enjoyable to listen to as a consequence. It would be a pleasure to have her backing you, whether in ensemble and solo. She's also an accomplished composer, and I assume, arranger, although perhaps the arranging emerges communally in this unusually empathetic performing group.

Then there's Myra Melford. I own a couple of albums of Melford with her own ensembles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rachel Friedman is awesome October 18, 2013
By theMezz
Format:Audio CD
With the exception of ONCE and the awesome job that Rachel Friedman did on vocals, this CD is not my cup of tea.

Since I heard ONCE I've been craving more work by Rachel Friedman, but simply cannot find it on any music store, nor can I find her on social media either.

Anyone know of other recordings by Rachel Friedman that I can buy ???

She's awesome
