Full bodied jazz splendor Dimitri K. – I Am Not Yours

Full bodied jazz beauty Dimitri K. – I AM NOT YOURS:  Our (long-time) friend Dimitri K. is back with more full-bodied jazz splendor for your listening pleasure… before I even get started, I (most strongly) recommend that you first watch the beautiful video he produced for his song “Monday Morning“…

be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Dimitri K.’s YouTube channel, too, where you’ll find many wonderful videos, albums and performances… I did.

I’ve reviewed Dimitri K.’s excellent music several times before, most recently on his “Gardens of Delight” album, which also got a “PICK” from me for “most intriguing jazz album”, so I’m well acquainted with his skills.

The guitar leads on the 4:28 “Lost in Intensity” take the album to an entirely new level… I predict that DJ’s of all stripes will be choosing this for constant rotation in their playlists… Lannie Battistini’s keyboard on this one is crisp, clear and full of life!

One thing that is always at the forefront on Dimitri K.’s compositions is a sense of hope for the future… you will sense that on the beautiful “If You Can Dream It“… I just loved the heartfelt violin passages on this song, and have no doubt you will, too.

The deep, rich tones of the saxophone on the intro for the 3:24 “Cafe Societe” drew me in to the soul of the song… this is another song that is perfect for DJ’s (of all stripes), as well… highly original playing, a strong sense of spirit and flawless recording all work together to make it a favorite for me!

It was (unquestionably) the opening title track, “I Am Not Yours“, featuring vocalist Lyia Meta, that got my vote for personal favorite of the dozen delightful songs offered up for our listening pleasure… the song brings the full pulse of life to your ears and will give you the energy you need to continue your journey.

I give Dimitri K. and the players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 for this excellent listening adventure.  Get more information on Dimitri K.’s website.                                 Rotcod Zzaj
