Delightfully diverse spoken-word jazz Sophie Dunér & Gene Pritsker – SONGS ECLECTIC: Any time a new album comes out from my multi-talented (and multi-instrumentalist) friend Gene, it’s time to put all the “mundane” aside and sit down to LISTEN… on the new album, you’ll hear the most delightfully diverse spoken-word jazz you’ve ever listened to… if you’re not familiar with Gene’s often “zany” playing style, the video below will give you a rewarding view…
You’ll find MANY more unique and fresh live videos when you SUBSCRIBE to Gene’s YouTube channel (I’ve been there for ages)…
The opening song alone, “Robot In Love“, is absolutely delightful… Sophie puts on a tantalizing show with her high-energy scat singing contrasted against Gene’s open-ended guitar wonders!
When it comes to laid-back “bluesiness”, you’ll find no better duo than you’ll hear on “Funeral Blues“… Sophie’s vocal is splendidly breathless – so, LISTEN with your headphones on… it’s worth it, to be sure.
Mark Kostabi’s “Wake Up World” is brilliantly performed, with shimmering vocals and guitar that travels high in the ether… this performance must be considered for an award!
I had no difficulty in choosing my personal favorite of the eight exciting songs offered up… “Beating Pulse” isn’t quite what you might think from the title, but the interactions between Gene’s guitar and Sophie’s ethereal vocal are totally priceless.
The album features the absolutely unique and entertaining talents of Sophie Dunér – voice/composer; Gene Pritsker – guitar/composer; Mark Kostabi – composer and Erik T. Johnson – poet, and gets a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 from these old ears. Get more information on Gene’s BandCamp page for the release. Rotcod Zzaj
