Zzaj Jazz


Tin Fish Tango

By Dick Metcalf


Some of the same folks who played on the “Pelican” CD reviewed below played on this one as well… James Singleton on bass & Mark McGrain on trombone, & Tom Fitzpatrick on sax to be specific.  It has a much “straighter jazz” orientation than “Pelican”… scope out “Bright Side” to hear what I mean.  “No Spill, Spew” features excellent & right-on-time improvisation, & “Big Bhang Theory” takes you right down to what the “core” of jazz is all about!  My absolute favorite track was the closer, “Diddlin‘”… high talent & subtle energy displayed on each & every note, with a low & funky groove that satisfies to the max!  These guys are tight – have to be to do all 13 tunes without drums… I give them a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, especially for listeners who want a little taste of “different” in their listening experience.  “EQ” (energy quotient) rating is 4.97.
