Close communication jazz duos Pearring Sound – Socially Distanced Duos

Close communication jazz duos Pearring Sound – SOCIALLY DISTANCED DUOS:  What a difference a Pandemic makes… things (and sounds) were definitely different when I reviewed alto-saxophonist Jeff Pearring’s “Nothing But Time” in 2019… on this new 2021 sonic adventure, Jeff plays some exciting close communication jazz with artists of many persuasions (as a direct result of the Pandemic, of course).  You can witness Jeff’s unique and interesting playing by watching this excellent video first…

Also, when you SUBSCRIBE to Jeff’s iMSeven YouTube channel, you can enjoy many more sonically creative adventure.  

The artists Jeff chose for his socially distanced album are Billy Mintz, drums 1,2; Cameron Brown, bass 5,6; Claire de Brunner, bassoon 3; Daniel Carter, soprano saxophone 7; Francisco Mela, drums 8 and Ken Filiano, bass 4… a great example of just how creative players can be in stressful situations will become clear as you listen to Cameron’s excellent bass work on “Solar”… I predict that this 3:11 gem will be getting a LOT of airplay!

The closer, “Extempore Arquitectura”, features Francisco’s distinctive drumming, and is one of the most intricate performances I’ve heard (yet) in 2021… just SUPERB.

I had no difficulty in choosing my personal favorite of the eight exciting duos Jeff and his pals offer up for our jazz journey… “A Continuous Conversation Renewed”, with Ken’s bass, just moves with the vibrancy of life… Jeff’s reeds are in “flow mode” from the opening note to the closing bar on this excellent tune!

I give Jeff and his musical cohorts a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this fine jazz adventure.  Get more information on Jeff’s website as it becomes available.              Rotcod Zzaj
