Marin IJ "Press Play" Reviews "2 Days in May" and "2 More Days in May"
Special thanks to Paul Libertore of the Marin IJ for his wonderful article in today's IJ.
To see the entire article "PRESS PLAY"
Here's a little snippet:
"...Only consummate musicians could record 23 Latin jazz and bossa nova-flavored songs — including tunes by Dizzy Gillespie (“A Night in Tunisia”), Antonio Carlos Jobim (“One Note Samba,” “Wave”), Chick Corea (“Spain”) and Bud Powell (“Parisian Thoroughfare”) — in such a short amount of time. What’s even more extraordinary is that the tracks are consistently creative, inventive and often surprising.
On “Midnight Sun,” for example, a hip jazz standard by Lionel Hampton, Sonny Burke and Johnny Mercer that was made famous by Ella Fitzgerald in 1957, Goodin’s crystalline vocal rises above a languid, almost abstract arrangement tagged by Morton’s lovely piano solo."
As you all know, I think the musicians and the music of Del Sol Band is some of the best jazz around and I can't wait to sing and play with them again . CD's are available on CD Baby !
