Customer Reviews

Great jazz album!

One of my favorite albums to come out by an amazing group of supremely talented musicians. Jay has done an excellent job composing and arranging the music. It is the perfect album for listening in most any situation or time of day.

Jazz for a new generation

Not to sound snobbish or one of those record store clerks, but there's a lot of great current music out there, sometimes you just have to look beneath the surface — whether it be indie rock, rap, funk, psychedelic, pop, blues. And previously unbeknownst to me, apparently modern jazz is good too.

Most music magazines and websites don't say much about jazz, and after listening to this record, I'm not sure why. "Unashamed Portrayal" draws from a lot of great times periods — mainly early '70s jazz to my ears. But it's also forward-looking, incorporating modern various styles of modern music.

I could see this having crossover potential, too. Andre Bush's guitar playing sounds unreal, especially on some of the longer tracks. In fact, great, energetic instrumentation isn't hard to find on this album. I dig the saxophone and trumpet. And of course, Jay Smith, who leads this circus, vacillates between wailing on his keyboard and playing moody tones. This is a jazz record for jazz aficionados and modern music fans alike. Highly recommended, opened my mind to this generation's jazz.
