Jazz Artistry Now reviews by Scott Yanow

alchemysoundproject-adventures

“In reality, the music of Alchemy Sound Project is much better heard than described since a great deal takes place in a subtle, tasteful, and thoughtful manner. The music, which is never obvious, is easy to enjoy and recommended.”

– Scott Yanow, Jazz Artistry Now

RATING


“This stimulating and often-stormy set of exciting post-bop jazz does an excellent job of displaying the musical talents of Jeff “Siege” Siegel’s quartet.”

Genre: Jazz: Modern Creative Jazz

Release Date: 2018

Recorded at: Weights and Measures Soundlab by Duane Trower.


Jeff Shirley: POINT OF THE STORY (ARC-2833)
Release party for the album is
at Black Dolphin on Saturday, April 14.


PRESS*

Point of the Story, the new album by Jeff Shirley, is impeccably tasteful.

It’s a shock, consequently, when a bit of grit is introduced on the eleventh track.

“Gerkin’s Sister Temple” adds six-minutes of left-of-center edginess to a 75-minute document that otherwise glides right down the center of jazz’s mainstream lane.”
