This new album by Jason Marsalis and his 21st Century Trad Band, ‘Melody Reimagined: Book 1′, is an all around solid album. The quartet made of Jason on vibraphone, Will Goble on bass, Austin Johnson on piano, and Dave Potter on drums, is super swingin’ and groovin’! The tune writing is excellent, the execution of those tunes is well above par.
Both Matthew Altizer and I, Rich Dole, really enjoyed this album. What is even better is that Jason is coming to Indianapolis and playing at The Jazz Kitchen on Sunday, January 28th! Head to http://www.thejazzkitchen.com for ticket information and we’ll see you there!
