Decisions-Michael Dease-review

RUN! Don't walk! ...and purchase this beautiful album.
So much good to be said about Michael Dease's performances and about the playing done by the consummate professionals he has working with him here; including the great bass playing from, Rodney Whitaker, who happens to be the head of MSU Jazz Studies!
I have listened to the whole album repeatedly since purchasing it and love that Michael's lyrical voice shines throughout via his minimalist approach to the use of vibrato. He has succeeded here in creating a congruous presentation of his vision.
Jason's Gonna Get Ya - is the perfect start with a great head nodding groove. Love the rhythmic play in Gorgeous Gwen, the dissonance in Right Place, Wrong Time, Everything Must Change is so sweetly presented, it makes me cry each time,
You're My Everything is also such a sweet tune and finally, The Big D...what a great finish ...and word play with the title; leaving us all wondering if it's D for Dease or D for Detroit! Ultimately, this album is a trip worth taking...at any price!

Michael Dease does it again! From start to finish, this album showcases a great mix of original compositions and jazz standards, wonderful ensemble playing, and imaginative improvisations by each member of the ensemble. Dease demonstrates his complete control over the instrument and ability to improvise in a number of settings throughout the recording. This album is absolutely terrific!

There is something inviting about the way the trombone sounds in Michael Deases's hand. First, one encounters a beautiful tone, which pays homage to to jazz trombone masters Curtis Fuller, JJ Johnson, and in a similar way to Steve Turre and Steve Davis. However, tribute is the word. Mike Dease's sound is all its own- A mixture of Down South funkiness and sensibilities scrambled with a Tabasco sauce of schooled technical virtuosity. Let's face it: this Dude can flat out play! In his hands, the trombone soars past its pre-conceived technical limitations to reward the listener with blasts of musical brilliance.

In this CD, Michael combines 6 original compositions with 4 arrangements of other works. The album is full of interesting moments and pays tribute to the tradition of what some call "straight ahead" jazz. Interesting melodies and refreshing performances. Highly recommended!!
