Format: Audio CD
Bohemian Sun documents Sunnie Paxson's mastery of jazz at its core, straight ahead. From the first note of the opening song, "Seabound," this recording project glides, slides, thumps and swings. This work is filled with delightful twists and turns across 14 songs that provide a glimpse of Sunnie's talents as a composer and arranger.

"Stella By Starlight" is an impressive presentation of movements and transitions that parallel the classical genre. A slow, intriguing solo piano prelude has an emotional, bluesy feel, followed by a toe-tapping swing that eventually came to a halt to make way for a soothing bow-on-bass solo. "Something for Nothing" teases the senses with a dramatic backdrop of sexy Salsa rhythms, including one of several great drum solos on this CD.

If you like swing, Sunnie Paxson has guaranteed your satisfaction on several more cuts, including, "Dolphin Dance," "There is No Greater Love," and "Tap Dancer." "Three Wrong Notes" is packed with a perfect dose of sass and snap as one of many tunes on this work perfectly suited for lyrics as a Broadway Show Tune.

"One Step Beyond" sounds like a love ballad, whispering what words cannot capture. "Khabhaye Talaei" seems an ideal adult lullaby, with a ballerina music box feel of jazziness. Sunnie gives proper treatment to "Duke Ellington's Sound of Love." Perhaps a parting tribute to the roots of this genre of America's original art form, "Say A Prayer" is a rich, gospel tune that sways with soul.

This is a welcomed, unexpected detour for a pianist who is known for a signature style of syncopated funky rifts. It is certain to capture the attention of the most avid jazz connoisseurs who enjoy the sophistication of jazz, straight ahead.
