Album Review

It seems like ages since record companies had actual house producers, but Mesa-Bluemoon's Rick Braun seems to be gracing some of the label's most engaging projects these days. First came Willie & Lobo's worldbeat finesse, and now Avenue Blue featuring Jeff Golub, a snappy, fluid guitarist who takes the sharp lilt of Steve Laury into fascinatingly cool textures ranging from hip-hop to atmospheric new age with just enough jazz tradition infused to cross genres. It's a credit to Golub, in fact, that his wide palette of original compositions ring truer than do surefire soul covers like "Pick Up the Pieces" or "I'll Be Around." Braun (who adds his own trumpet flair) allows the sure-fisted Golub to be the star here, keeping the moods potent but slightly understated, even on the Tower of Power-like charts of the best cut, "Gimmie Some." The album's real charm lies in its shifting, unpredictable dynamics, as Golub attains out-there fusion textures just before softening to a Wes Montgomery-like solo pose on the soft-spoken strains of "Moon River." Definitely an auspicious debut.

Customer Reviews

Simply Excellent!!!

I had never heard of Jeff Golub before. I don't remember how I stumbled on to this album. Not a jazz officionado but I know sweet music when I hear it. This is a great album. I have scored it 4 stars on all the songs on this album. A little unsettling when the beginning of Nightingale, kind of reminded me of AmyWinehouse. I shouldn't be saying this!!
Perfect for early Friday night listening with your favourite tipple!! It gets 4 of my 'Bo Ndiku' points!!
