Album Review

Granelli, Jerry – “1313” – [Divorce Records]

Cousin Mary   12/12/2012   12-inch, Jazz

Percussionist Jerry Granelli drummed in traditional bands early in his career (perhaps best known with Vince Guaraldi on A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS), then took a turn toward free jazz. This album is his only solo release and features bells, cymbals, snares and bass. The improvised solo percussion is sometimes a bit dark and could be considered rather minimal. I found it satisfying and very lovely. Only a master musician could pull this off.
