Richly textured original jazz Event Horizon Jazz Quartet – Event Horizon

Richly textured original jazz Event Horizon Jazz Quartet – EVENT HORIZON:  On this truly exciting new album, you’ll hear Jim Kaczmarek – Saxophones and Flute; Scott Mertens – Piano and Keyboard; Donn DeSanto – String Bass and Rick Vitek – Drums… they’re out of Chicago, and as you’ll see when you watch this video of “We Would Love To Have You” (from an earlier performance, not from the album)…

…you can actually hear all the tunes from the album when you SUBSCRIBE to the Event Horizon Jazz Quartet topic channel on YouTube.

As you listen to the mellow piano intro to Jim’s original, “Guess Not“, you may feel like you’re going on a gentle jaunt, but when his sax kicks in right at the :56 mark, you’ll realize that this is a truly masterful piece of jazz… I predict that this one will be getting LOTS of airplay!

The percussion on the 6:27 “Black Samba” blends perfectly with Scott’s piano, as you might expect, since he wrote the piece… excellent recording and execution make this a tune that will be on the jazz scene for years to come.

A superb (and strong) bass line sets up “Strut” for some fine interplay between all the instruments… this is another of those songs that will be getting HUGE amounts of airplay!

I knew after I had listened through the whole album the first time that my choice for personal favorite of the eleven songs offered up would be Scott’s “Escher Drive“… great solos from each of the players on this one.

I give Event Horizon Jazz Quartet a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this stimulating hour of jazz.  Get more information on the Event Horizon Jazz Quartet page for the release.         Rotcod Zzaj
