Album Review

Michael Wolff has a strong reputation as a versatile and swinging jazz pianist. Love and Destruction is a major change for him; on this set he is cast as a singer/songwriter, performing modern folk music and sounding a bit (tone-wise) like Michael Franks but with a weaker voice. His website claims that this set of music is a mixture of rock, pop and world music and it is true that his jazz piano and improvising are greatly de-emphasized.

Hopefully Love and Destruction is only a temporary departure from Michael Wolff's musical strengths.
