Volcanic funky fusion guitar jazz Kenny Carr – Distance

Volcanic funky fusion guitar jazz Kenny Carr – DISTANCE:  I’ve long (and I mean LONG) been a fan of jazz guitarist’s volcanic funky fusion guitar jazz, but I can say (without qualification) that this 15 March, 2021 release from Kenny is THE funkiest I’ve ever heard from him… get a taste of Kenny and his players from a couple years back first in this live video…

You’ll find MANY more rousing performances from Kenny when you SUBSCRIBE to his YouTube channel… I signed up instantly.

Kenny plays guitar/guitar synthesizer and keyboards and is joined by Richie Morales doing drums, with Lincoln Goines on bass, and when I listened to the high-energy opener, “Tune 77“, I knew right away that this album would get a permanent slot on my iPhone player… remember, that’s ONLY for the very BEST jazz; from the very first note, this tune just COOKS, folks!

The 6:16 title track, “Distance“, creates a slightly more laid-back mood, but it’s still full of raw energy… this is a perfect tune for rollin’ down the highways and byways… DJ’s (of all sorts) will be slotting this song into playlists constantly.

Being a veteran of some pretty heavy therapy, I can tell you that my shrink would immediately approve and recommend the closing song, the 7:09 “Primal Scream“… there’s a “bounciness” to this high-energy tune that will have you high-steppin’ all the way home!

I knew after my first listen through the album that “Funk Delux” was my choice for personal favorite of the nine originals Kenny offers up for our jazz journey… in fact, this is the song that ultimately made me decide to add this to my iPhone… when it comes to funky fusion, folks, it just don’t get no better than this.

I give Kenny and his highly talented crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with a (perfect) “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 5.00… which means, of course, that they also get a “PICK” from me for “best jazz guitar fusion album of 2021”.  Get more information on Kenny’s website.                            Rotcod Zzaj
