Track 1: Different Dance
Going into the jungle of percussion and wood with the saxophone explorer. Woah, this tune is cool, very unexpected transition, chords, melody, rhythms, and is a really unique tune! The writing on this record is impeccable! Overdubbed guitar, that’s cool to hear the guitar accompanying itself for their solo. I’m curious who the guitarist’s influences are, really plays great stuff! I’m also wondering when Trapchak got his rhythmic influence from; that is one of the most interesting things in this record, to hear all that development, and all those kinds of ideas. The sax solo on this is beautiful, I’m searching for comparisons but am coming up short, and I mean that in the best of ways, it’s really great! Cool tune, it went in a several directions from start to finish.
Yet again, my apologies for not getting on this review earlier, but I’m glad I did. This is a great album by a wonderful bassist and composer, Sam Trapchak. Anyone curious about the review should go out and BUY THE ALBUM, Lollipopocalypse!!!!! I’m happy to have listened to it, and gotten a chance to review it, perfect way to start my morning here in the early 2012!!! This record is bringing in the New Year to me right, check it out!
