Curtis – Blue Electric Cool

Here’s an apt-titled album. Curtis Fornadley’s inspired new album is simply great. Cool jazz, but not too-jazz. Just relaxed and to the point. Good musicianship without going overboard and becoming a competition between musicians, like too many jazz albums.

Rob Chismar is on drums, while Dave Hill plays bass. Curtis rounds off the trio with beautiful guitar licks and keyboards.

A few other musicians join in with brass instruments and Homer Simpson himself even makes an appearance…

Very melodic, great themes that actually go somewhere. A fabulous album overall which I highly recommend.
