Editorial Reviews

Review

A crooner who also plays a mean trombone, and does both equally well...Whether he is viewed as a singer who plays trombone or vice versa is really a matter of semantics, since he is well skilled in both areas and demonstrates it time and again throughout this collection of self-composed material and standards...Felten hits a home run with Seize the Night. --All About Jazz

Easily one of the most distinctive artists on the scene today, the great Eric Felten has a new CD...If you are looking for that 'something different' in the musical creativity of jazz, Eric Felten is it! --Drumhead Magazine

Vocalist/trombonist Eric Felten is one of the best kept vocal secrets around...It would be nice if Seize the Night garners for him the attention that he deserves...This is the kind of album that should get attention from good music lovers, a difficult thing to do in the current musical environment. Get out and support music like this before it get totally buried under the pile of musical inanity that dominates today. --Jersey Jazz Magazine

Well, I might as well get it over with - I don't think that Eric Felton has a particularly good voice. Oh, I know, a lot of critics who get paid to have opinions think otherwise, but that's my story and I'm stickin' to it. Now that's not to say that I don't like his voice - I do - it's a warm, mellow baritone, and he has a vocal playfulness and a relaxed swinging style that reminds me a little of John Pizzarelli - another guy who's not the second coming of Sinatra, but who's very easy to listen to. Like Mr Pizzarelli, Mr Felten knows exactly what his voice can do, and he does it extremely well.

There is, of course, a second musical side to Mr Felten - he is one of the two or three best trombonists working in jazz today. His horn has a lovely, open, warm quality - if the word "lyrical" can be applied to the trombone, then it's applied with Mr Felten's playing in mind.

"Seize the Night" is a mix of standards like "If I Had You," "Dancing in the Dark," "Blue Skies," and one of my favorite Ellington titles, "Tulip or Turnip;" and, welcome to Mr Felten's third musical side, half a dozen original songs. And the band? Oh boy....

Joining Mr Felten are the great Kenny Barron at the piano; bassist Dennis Irwin; drummer Jimmy Cobb; and tenor saxman Don Braden. Mr Barron's playing is exceptional, even for him - but the interplay between Messrs Felten and Braden is worth the price of the ticket!

Bottom line: If you like relaxed, swinging main stream jazz, with a little 40's spin, you're gona' like "Seize the Night."

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb writing by a rising star March 12, 2011

Eric Felten can do it all, and he does so in this album of originals and standards. I've chided his other effort (with the Dek-Tette) but this one is well worth extended airplay (I am a jazz DJ in a small Pacific Northwest radio market). His originals are clever and accessible, an act that's difficult to pull off. His wide intervals are difficult to sing but he nails them all. I like Eric's politics and bartending books, too. Musically, he's a champion of old wine in new wineskins.
