Highly spirited ultra cool jazz David Sills – Natural Lines

Highly spirited ultra cool jazz David Sills – NATURAL LINES:  I don’t believe I’ve heard a reedist who is any better… if you love highly spirited & ultra cool jazz, this 17th album from David is an absolute must for your collection… to get a close-up look at his playing, watch the trailer created for the album first…

…you’ll find a few more videos and performances when you SUBSCRIBE to David’s YouTube channel… I did it right away.

You’ll hear David on tenor saxophone and alto flute; Mike Scott doing guitar; Larry Koonse on guitar; Blake White playing bass and Tim Pleasant doing drums, and as you listen to David’s upbeat and energetic original, “Foggy Daze“, you’ll realize that he and his players are in the jazz genius realm… this one will be getting a LOT of heavy-duty airplay!

Guitarist Mike Scott’s solidly groovin’ original, “Minor Monk“, opens the album most tastefully to give you a very pleasant 5:28 listen… this tune was an “instant hit” for me, and will be added to my iPhone player today.

I really liked the fact that David included originals from several of the players, too… a tune that David, Larry and Mike co-authored, “All The Little Things“, will put you in a very relaxed frame-of-mind… the interaction between the guitars and saxophone is just superb on this piece!

My choice for personal favorite of the dozen dynamic performances was too easy… David’s “Jones’ Tones” clocks in at 7:18, and gives each player a chance to shine… this tune alone makes the purchase of the album an easy decision for true jazz lovers!

I give David and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this superb jazz adventure.  Get more information on David’s website.                                         Rotcod Zzaj
