highly diverse jazz Jeff Coffin – Only The Horizon

highly diverse jazz Jeff Coffin – ONLY THE HORIZON:  If your preferences in what you listen to include highly diverse jazz, then multi-instrumentalist Jeff and his musical companions have got what you need.  The album doesn’t officially release until 19 July, 2024, so the video being shared here is from an earlier performance, and will give you an idea of Jeff’s high-talent music…

I most strongly recommend that you SUBSCRIBE to Jeff’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find over 100 videos to enjoy.  (I’ve been watching them for over a week now).

If lively and funky is what you’re down for, you’ll find “Bom Bom”… superb West African rhythms from the Yeli Ensemble, and call/response playing throughout this high-energy 8:10 tune will have you popping fingers and dancin’ ’round your listening room, guaranteed… timeless energy with driving rhythms!

The player list is too long for this review, but you can check it out on the promotion page for the album… after my 4th listen through the entire album, I had no doubt that the 7:44 title track, “Only The Horizon”, was my choice for personal favorite of the eight highly enjoyable originals offered up for this fascinating jazz journey.  The Afro-Cuban feel is genuine, heartfelt and totally engaging from the opening note to the closing bar.

I give Jeff and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99.  You’ll find more information as it gets closer to the release date on Jeff’s Spotify channel (below).
