Highly impressive jazz statements The Tucker Brothers – TWO PARTS: This is another “first listen” for me… this wonderful album features The Tucker Brothers Joel Tucker guitar, Nick Tucker bass, with Sean Imboden tenor saxophone, Brian Yarde drums and several special guests – Elena Escudero voice, Walter Smith III tenor Saxophone, Ellie Pruneau piano & Amanda Gardier alto saxophone… a very well-produced and enjoyable video gives you clear insight for what they’re trying to accomplish…
…I particularly like the gentle “swayed-back” aura of their playing… be sure to SUBSCRIBE to the YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more exciting videos… I did.
Tunes like “When Souls Meet“, featuring Walter’s tenor work, will hold you totally spellbound… you’ll definitely become an “instant believer” in The Tucker Brothers talent and energy as you listen to this one (over & over again)!
The vocals that Elena performs on the opener, “Warm Heart“, are simply magic… the song has a “mellowness” that few are able to achieve these days… some of the coolest jazz vocal work I’ve heard (yet) in 2019!
Joel’s guitar on “Lifely” is shimmering with the spirit of life & the living of it… I predict that this composition will garner MAJOR airplay on jazz stations ’round the globe… it certainly merits it, folks.
The bass intro from Nick on “Heavy Drop” is similar to what you might expect, but since the tune clocks in at 9:00, there is plenty of room for the other players to contribute to the conversation they’re having with you… this is my personal favorite of the nine songs offered up for this superb jazz adventure!
Truth be told, I haven’t been this impressed with a “new” group (new to me, anyway) in a while… I give these wonderful players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99. Get more information on the Joel Tucker website. Rotcod Zzaj
