Product Description

Amazon.com

From the first muted melody statements of "Cookout," it's unmistakable that trumpeter Rod McGaha is a star on the rise. You might look at him and his band without a glimmer of recognition, since they're Nashville-based players. Unfamiliarity in this case should breed curiosity and hunger. McGaha is a big blower, connecting phrases with the glee of Lee Morgan and a tight, fully developed sense of phrase that places him somewhere besides Mogie, perhaps with Booker Little. In any event, McGaha has chops to burn and a soulful hand at writing. His takes on "In a Sentimental Mood" and Bobby Timmons's "This Here" are impeccable, and "Can't Buy Me Love," a nod to the Beatles, sounds inspired (which itself is a feat). After a half-hour of Preacherman, it dawns on you that his trumpet is the only horn in the band, which is yet another uncommon facet of this CD. He fills the air with slurs and stretched notes, milking every moment for its worth. --Andrew Bartlett

I've had the pleasure of hearing and playing with Rod since 1978, and this CD affirms what I've always known- Rod is one Bad Cat! Soulful, emotional, and expressive come to mind when I listen to Rod- no pretentiousness or too cool to care vibe comin' from this brother. Deeply entrenched in the tradition of the music and the jazz trumpet players who came before him, Rod has long since surpassed the mere mimicking exhibited by too many players today, and has developed his own unique and personal voice. A must hear for any true jazz fan.

Format: Audio CD
Rod McGaha's Preacherman is one of my favorite CD's of the year. Don't miss it. The first few boogie woogie notes of Cookout announce that here is a CD pulsing with energy, originality, a nod to the past, but an eye on the future. McGaha's composition "Splip, Bap, Boom'" harkens back to the "straighten up and fly right" 40's melody, but then takes off in different directions, part sass, part sugar candy. Rodgers & Hart's "Lover" starts out with a disjointed feel and smooths into some inspired trumpet from McGaha. McGaha's title track builds as kind of bluesy inspirational piece. McGaha polishes up the Lennon/McCartney "Can't Buy Me Love" with a jazz spontaneity that makes it shine. Ellington's "In a Sentimental Mood" unfolds so sweetly and lovingly that it becomes new again. McGaha's own "Fruit of the Spirit" is both contemplative and mystical. Don't miss out on this CD! I listen to a lot of music, but rarely do I stand up and cheer as loudly as I do for McGaha's Preacherman!

Rod has an amazing sensitivity that takes you to a higher realm. Truly a gift from God that has seriously been developed by hours of work doused with lots of heart.
