Album Review

Bassist Morrie Louden's second CD is a diverse affair, utilizing a constantly shifting group of musicians which includes pianist Edward Simon, saxophonists Bob Sheppard and Seamus Blake, guitarist Lionel Loueke and a host of others. The tense post-bop vehicle "Verbatim" showcases Simon, Sheppard (on tenor sax) and the leader to good effect. "Supposition" is a lovely melancholy ballad featuring flugelhornist Alex Sipiagin. Several large ensemble tracks feature Gil Goldstein's horn charts, including the brisk samba "Tunamo" and the driving Latin-flavored cooker "Mr. Frump" (which Louden dedicates to a grumpy rich man who used to lose lots of money gambling while expressing his displeasure to the band). Louden's multi-faceted mini-suite "Time Piece" is an intricate Latin composition that grows on the listener with each hearing. Thelonious Monk Vocal Jazz Competition winner Gretchen Parlato adds background colors to several numbers and adds effective Portuguese vocals to "Insenzatez" and "A Rosa." Highly recommended!

Customer Reviews

Great CD

Really amazing playing on this cd by some truly great musicians. Morrie Louden's bass playing is spectacular. There are also three Brazilian vocal tracks, with Gretchen Parlato's beautiful voice, that take my breath away - particularly Insensatez - I can't stop listening to it. Possibly the most sincere, and intensely emotional vocal interpretations I've heard. Beautiful CD.

Morrie Louden!!

There is absolutely no words that can describe the musicianship of this man. The things he does on bass aren't supposed to be done. That is what makes his talent transcend above the normal reality of standard musicality. If only I could muster a few more words together that could somewhat describe the talent that pours out of Morrie in a more descriptive detail. PHENOMENAL!
