Sonic brilliance - another great album from Reza

Reza Khan – A Simple Plan

Producer/keyboardist/guitarist Reza Khan definitely knows and handles his niche in music well. His hard-to-pigeonhole style of intermixing a little country, a little rock, and a lot of world influences gives his projects a unique sound that followers of such a blend have to really appreciate.

Here with his latest release, A Simple Plan (a title that I’m sure was inspired by his daughter-inspired song of the same name here), Khan lays out simple catchy melodies representative of lands and settings from every corner of the earth in many ways.

As I implied in my review of his previous release, Painted Diaries, his music touches a special kind of palate. While not for everyone, its appeal is undeniable among “world travelers.”

Khan employs the saxy sax of Andy Snitzer on this project on select tracks, and it only enhances those tunes. My fave here would “Painted Stories” where the saxman exhibits his noteworthy skills passionately. The beautiful finale “September Morning,” with all of its world touch, is a truly appropriate way to end this potpourri of global journeys.

Using the sitar, accordion, and a kind of “riding on horseback into the sunset” approach, this album covers many of the universal moods.

On the jazz side of things, a couple of tracks get the job done. The tunes that come to mind would be “Language of Love,” “Sweetest Things,” and the funky-in-a-country-kind-of-way track, “Funktionality”—this latter piece features a very impressive accordion solo by Viviane Amoux, by the way. The rest of the album is a well-done world-flavored project, especially if you like that “outdoorsy/frontier” kind of world material.

Overall, another fine effort by a fine artist who knows the landscape of his music and how to paint vivid images of it.

Exotic but familiar

Have listened to this several times and enjoyed it every time. Back to probably buy his other. Lovely.
