Diversified Internet age jazz David Peoples – Looking For Utopia

Diversified Internet age jazz David Peoples – LOOKING FOR UTOPIA:  David says, in his own words, “I write narrative poetry in free verse using musical notes.”; lots of other players use hyperbole to the ‘nth degree to describe their work, but David is the “real deal“, folks, and his music is “definitely different” (a very good thing here in my Zzaj Productions studios)… the album isn’t even in pre-sales mode yet, and goes live in early January, 2019 (I’ll come back and add sample links when I’m told the album is “hot)… in the meantime, I’ll tell you that songs like “Peach Blossom Spring” make the listening a most pleasant experience that you’ll be coming back to again & again… significant strains of jazz pervade, so it’s not (at all) your typical “New Age” release… just LOVE the piano on this tune, as well as the magical percussion that’s woven in between the notes.

One reason (besides the obvious musical talent) I fell in love with David’s album is that it was put together much the way we used to do in the old “home-taper days“… all the way from Atlanta to South Africa to Berlin… the players joining David are Carina Bruwer, flute; Natasha Jaffe, cello; Abnmusic3,vibes and Jwnaugle, drums, and as you listen to the marvelous blending and unique changes on the title track, “Looking For Utopia”, you’ll hear just how exciting today’s diverse Internet age music can be… after the (long) piano intro (at about the 2:25 mark), a mysteriously satisfying cosmic weave will take you to the outer edges of your existence… simply beautiful!

It wasn’t any chore at all to choose my personal favorite of the dozen performances David offers up for your aural enjoyment… “City of Golden Lights” starts off with a beautiful flute intro that segues very nicely into a world/city where we all want to be… this song will definitely be added to my “permanent” list on my iPhone player (an honor reserved for only a few songs)…. brilliantly brings hope to a world greatly in need of it.

I give David and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this most memorable album.  Get more information on David’s website.          Rotcod Zzaj
