Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds
I did a mini review awhile back of this group’s previous release with the confusing title. I think we decided the title was: “Mebane’s Eleven, Tunes for Two” .
I see they’ve made things easier this time by using the band name as the album name as well. Whew.
Again, not a huge jazz connoisseur but I like this. It’s perfect for dinner, cocktails, conversation, or just relaxing with the paper. Makes me feel all sophisticated-like. Lord knows I could use some of that in my life sometimes.
Some I know once said jazz music sounds like a bunch of instruments falling down the stairs. This isn’t like that at all. It’s melodic and rhythmic and really nice.
Oh and I want to greatly thank all of you who commented last time on how it’s OK if I am not well versed in jazz, you made my day…week…month! Those die hard jazz fans can be mean.
