Review

Pianist and composer Dan Siegel is an adventurer. After his breakout smooth jazz hits in the 1980s he successfully experimented with genres ranging from new age to film and TV scores and back. Indigo, his 20th album -- and first in half a decade -- features ten new compositions which have been painstakingly arranged and performed by a crack cast of players that includes bassist and co-producer Brian Bromberg, saxophonist Bob Sheppard, guitarist Allen Hinds (and Mike Miller on two tracks), Yellowjackets' drummer Will Kennedy, vibist Craig Fundyga, and percussionist Lenny Castro on percussion. Two different brass sections alternate on five cuts. Immediately striking is Indigo's sound. Tracked live in Bromberg's home studio, it is warm, rich, immediate, and full. These are some of Siegel's most imaginative tunes to date, and that's saying plenty. This is contemporary jazz played in a very straight-ahead fashion. That said, these tunes are boundary-less, they encompass elements from several genres in a jazz context. Opener "To Be Continued" contains elements of contemporary classical crossover, pop, and even Siegel's film music -- the brass section utilizes euphonium, French horn, and flügelhorns. But there is a palpable, syncopated groove in the pianist's harmonically inventive solo. The title cut begins with resonator and electric guitars in a blues groove, as Siegel's piano evokes a Ray Charles-like R&B, but as it unfolds with bright brass and a country-funk backbeat, the tune moves in several directions simultaneously and could only be encompassed by jazz. The guitar in "Beyond" actually evokes a pedal steel, but the interplay between piano, upright bass, and acoustic guitars is elegant, graceful, and emotionally deep. "If Ever" contains a lithe Latin tinge and a rich, expansive brass chart; its melody is impeccably crafted and contains excellent solos by Siegel and Sheppard on soprano. The R&B flavor in "Spur of the Moment" is offset by intricate counterpoint and lyric exchanges, the soloists atop the brassy, funky groove. "Consider This" is smoother and sweeter; it's soulful and cosmopolitan with Siegel adding a B-3 in support of his piano; Castro's percussion adds a Caribbean flavor. Closer "Endless" is positively euphoric, it's one of the finest moments here, due in no small part to Bromberg's knockout, fleet-fingered, woody pizzicato solo. Indigo is holistic and seamless in its articulation of contemporary jazz -- an extension in popular music and jazz's Big Tent tradition. More than this, though, it is a glorious, personal, panoramic statement from an artist who, after 35 years, is at the height of his creative powers. --Thom Jurek - AllMusic

Contemporary jazz keyboardist/composer/producer Dan Siegel has released his 20th album as Indigo and it s a keeper! The beating heart and soul heard on Indigo s 10 songs comes from the live production tracked in the cozy confines of a private home studio which, as you will hear, provides its own special ambiance. Dan Siegel has written all of the songs which include several poignant piano pieces as well as songs with ample room to dispense thoughtful guitar riffs.

Accompanied by many of today s top contemporary jazz artists who work as leaders themselves, Dan Siegel's creativity is without boundaries. Siegel s core unit consists of Bob Sheppard on saxophone, Allen Hinds and Mike Miller on guitars, Brian Bromberg on acoustic bass, Will Kennedy on drums, Craig Fundyga on vibraphone, and Lenny Castro on percussion. He employed a brass section on select tracks that is made up of Alan Kaplan, Stan Martin, Stephanie O Keefe, Lee Thornburg and Steve Torok. The cumulative result of such masterful players follows the standard of Dan Siegel s many successful recordings.

While it s fairly easy to program a contemporary jazz album with covers of music composed by other musicians. However, it is more complex when all of the songs have been conceived, produced, arranged and performed by one artist with colleagues of like mind. Dan Siegel s ingenuity is fascinating to hear and the music on Indigo shows his musical growth that has graduated to heights that other contemporary jazz keyboardists have not attained. He plays keyboards and piano on such songs as To Be Continued, By Chance, Beyond, and captivates listeners with unbridled passion. He chronicles a key moment of his expansive journey on Far and Away, If Ever, and Spur of the Moment. Dan Siegel s 40-year career and studio discography is summed up distinctively with these diverse, and spontaneous aesthetic.

Looking back at the historical and cultural sweep of his music, Siegel s release of Indigo finds him coming full circle. A lot of people forget that he has played with such artists as Herbie Hancock, Ernie Watts, Chaka Khan, Boney James and Lee Ritenour and composed an array of television and film scores. Nevertheless, Indigo represents a comprehensive body of work that you are sure to enjoy. --Paula Edelstein - AXS

A prolific and respected pianist, composer and producer, Dan Siegel's albums have provided an abundance of diverse material - from the electronic Another Time, Another Place (1984), (with Patrick O'Hearn and Alex Acuna), to the exotic world music direction of Hemispheres (1995). Having worked within ensemble groups and alongside an eclectic band of musicians - including Bela Fleck, Ottmar Liebert, Andy Narell, Osamu Kitajima, etc. - Siegel now brings to the fore his latest five-years-in-themaking musical statement, Indigo. On this, his 20th album, Siegel once again provides with some 10 tracks of good all-around varieties of contemporary jazz. Enveloping poetic piano, crafty keyboards, and his irresistible improvisational melodies and soloing, Indigo begins with the truly delightful, lifting sax fused 'To Be Continued,' which is backed by the piano-based 'By Chance.'

The taut title track is next, complete with tightly-orchestrated banjo strings, before both the drifting 'Far And Away' and 'If Ever' are rolled out. Listening to Indigo, as with all his musical works, in truth, it's clear Siegel is a terrific keyboardist and a strong composer. The music has its feet planted in the most radio-friendly of the smooth jazz tradition, but there is enough flair and adventurousness under the surface to keep the listener's interest.

The uptempo 'Spur of the Moment' is along next, and complete with Lenny Castro's percussion and Craig Fundyga's vibraphone embellishments, the added textures add color add just the right amount of vibrancy at each and every noted turn. 'First Light' brings the tempo down to a smokey nightclub feel with the album rounding out with both 'Consider This' (which also comes across as a Part II to the previous track), and then finally 'Endless' bringing the album to a close.

Simply put, Indigo is yet another resoundingly beautiful work of Dan Siegel art! The album presents an array of facets, each one displaying a portion of what's to come throughout. I look forward to exploring more of Siegel's works as we progress, although I hope he doesn't wait another five long years to do so! --Russell A. Trunk - Exclusive Magazine
