Awesomely improvised jazz Vince Tampio – Adult Children

Awesomely improvised jazz Vince Tampio – ADULT CHILDREN:  There’s one up-front word I have about the awesomely improvised jazz that horn-blower Vince creates on this new release – STUNNING!  As I scan the track titles, it’s clear that a lot of high-quality imagination is involved here, too… heck, the down & funky beats on “Soul Food Buddhist” (the links should go HOT next week) just made my day.

I didn’t see the album, or any LIVE videos, but I recommend you SUBSCRIBE to Vince’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find several other titles… (it would be nice to see a couple of live video/trailers show up there before the album officially releases on the 20th of October, 2020).

The odd juxtapositions on the 4:56 opener, “Career Cheerleader“, and the superb recording, made it an absolute favorite for me… I predict jazz DJ’s across the globe will be integrating this tune into their playlists regularly!

I got an odd flashback to groups like Godley and Creme when I listened to the intriguing “Vapid Transit“… the melding of wildfire guitar with solid trumpet lines just made the song “click” for me.

After one listen through the album, I knew (instantly) what my choice for personal favorite of the eight delicious tunes was going to be… “Cardinal Rule” is full of funk & it’s even danceable, lol (just think SuperFly)… it made it easy to me to decide that this album will get a permanent slot on my iPhone player – something that happens for ONLY the best jazz!

I give Vince and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  Get more information & pre-order this great musical adventure on Vince’s page for the release.                           Rotcod Zzaj
