Bluz Grazz & Jass

The Blues Grass influences that are undeniable and indelible in Grant Gordy's writing couple their energy to an Ellingtonian tendency to write pieces designed to show off the deep talents of his friends and fellow musicians. Alex Hargreaves, the fiddle prodigy that is now an adult voice with a hot jazz and blue grass enthusiasm tempered by a romantic melancholy waltz mode, is by far the most pronounced of these musical relationships, but this is not the only reason that the Django Reinhardt/Stephane Grappelli dyad comes to mind. There is a fluidity to the playing between Gordy and Hargreaves that bends the space between intuition and improvisation that gives them both joy, and that joy transmits like a high to the listener.

The key is, there's nothing but the present in the sound and enthusiasm of the resulting music and the compositions from whence they find their form. The pieces all have an inherent visual and filmic component, particularly Pterodactyl, Little Grapes and Motif for Leif. Dominick Leslie plays supple and mischievous mandolin on most cuts on the album and is playing on tour with the group. David Grisman, the "Big Lebowski" of Blues Grass cool factor mandolin, plays himself on "Blues to Dawg."

I recently heard this group live with Bridget Kearney (a tremendously talented bass player with a mean slap sound) and they are NOT TO BE MISSED. The joy of making music together is palpably part of this sound and it is a big sound worth hearing now and worth listening to for a long time.

There are Le Hot Jazz French influences to Gordy's sound, and there's a Mingus swing with a Miles cool back in there too. The compositional depth lends itself to the improvisational mastery of the musicians here, with Alex Hargreaves being a stand out among equals in a fluent musical Socratic call and response to Grant's runs and feints. A "must get" album for Blues Grass and Jazz fan and just for the 'just plain music freak.'


Monster player, great songs. How could you ask for more?
