Album Review

A very good guitarist originally from Detroit, Dan Baraszu deserves to be well-known. While he confesses to being influenced by Wes Montgomery, Joe Pass, Pat Martino and, to a lesser extent, Pat Metheny, he has his own voice on the instrument. Based in Atlanta where he both freelances and has his own group, Baraszu could hold his own with most jazz guitarists. That seems obvious after hearing the opening selection on Nightfall, his debut CD as a leader. The racing tempo of "April Fools," one of his nine originals on the set, is no problem as Baraszu constructs a melodic and relaxed solo. Joined by a top-notch rhythm section that includes pianist Kenny Banks, Baraszu plays funky on "Ain't Messin' 'Round," swings a medium-tempo minor blues on "Into the Blue," plays guitar synthesizer on "Time Machine," and takes a forgettable vocal on "Summit Drive." The music is primarily straight-ahead and, while not breaking any new ground, Nightfall does introduce Dan Baraszu's fresh approach to the idiom. Recommended.

Customer Reviews

Nighttime Chill

Having been a Jazz fan of such greats as Spyro Gyra and John Coltrane, it was difficult to step outside the lines and try something new. However, I'm glad I listened to this album 'Nightfall'. It's an awesome album with some great songs such as "Into the Blue" and "Nightfall." Great for listening to just lounge around or chill at night.

Amazing Talented Player

This album definatly puts Baraszu right alongside such greats as Pat Metheny, Joe Pass, and Pat Martino. The whole band on here is tight and in particular Kenny Banks really shines on all the tracks. The song "Nightfall" is probably one of my favorite jazz tunes. So if you are a fan of the greats I mentioned above, you do not want to miss this album.
