Superbly swinging accessible jazz guitar Henry Robinett Quartet – Jazz Standards Volume 2, Then Again

Superbly swinging accessible jazz guitar Henry Robinett Quartet – JAZZ STANDARDS VOLUME 2, THEN AGAIN:  When I reviewed Henry’s “Jazz Standards Then” album, I was ultimately impressed with his excellent jazz pacing; on his new release (slated for January 8th, 2021), you’ll hear some of the most superbly swinging accessible jazz you’ve ever listened to… though I didn’t find live performances from the album, to get a taste of his swinging style, check out this LIVE video first…

…if you liked that, you’ll want to be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Henry’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more LIVE videos for your jazz enjoyment.

Henry’s magical jazz guitar performance is very nicely complimented by Joe Gilman on piano, Chris Symer doing bass and drums from Michael Stephans… that’s especially true on their upbeat iteration of “On The Street Where You Live” (samples will be added when I’m told the album is live)… jazz DJ’s everywhere will be including this unique version of the classic on their playlists often, I predict!

That laid-back pacing I mentioned earlier is perfectly expressed on Johnny Green’s “Body and Soul”… Joe’s piano is just splendid on this tune, too… flawless recording certainly will enhance your listening pleasure.

After a couple listens through the entire album, it was very clear that my choice for personal favorite is “Milestones”… the quartet infuses this tune with an original energy that will make you come back to listen again and again… it also earned a spot on my iPhone player (reserved for only the BEST jazz)!

I give Henry and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this excellent album.  Find out more as it comes nearer to the January 8th, 2021 release date on Henry’s website.        Rotcod Zzaj
