Totally free modern improvised jazz Charles Colizza – Hug The Devil

Totally free modern improvised jazz Charles Colizza – HUG THE DEVIL:  This December, 2020 release from jazz guitar maestro Charles is a beautiful excursion into totally free modern improvised jazz… to get an up-close and personal look at the group’s musical magic, watch them perform Charles’s original “Lemon Cake”…

…samples won’t be available until just before the 21 December, 2020, release date, but trust me when I tell you they are absolutely smokin’!  Charles did all the guitar, compositions and arrangements, and was joined by Billy Drewes: soprano saxophone; Jake D’Ambra: tenor saxophone; Nick Panoutsos: doublebass and Lukas Akintaya: drums and percussions… if you’d like to see more of their songs, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to the Charles Colizza YouTube channel.

The opener, “Ground Zero”, is beautifully improvised, and sets the stage for the sense of freedom the group conveys through their passionate music… Charles and his players create a strong sense of movement and direction on this superb tune!

“Line’s Celebration” has a superb sax introduction that flows ever-so-nicely into a bass solo that I totally loved at around the :45 second mark… a robust flavor holds through the entire 5:50 length.

I had no trouble (at all) in making my choice for personal favorite of the seven long songs Charles offers up for this jazz adventure… “Yeah Sure” truly highlights Charles’s guitar, and I have no doubt you’re going to love this one just as much as I did!

I give Charles and his bandmates a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99… I’ll go so far as to say that if you prefer jazz guitar, this album is a MUST HAVE!  Get more information on Charles’s website.          Rotcod Zzaj
