Album Review

O’donnell, Kevin Quality Six – “Control Freak ” – [Delmark]

David Richoux   1/16/2005   CD, Jazz

Before you do anything with this, read the liner notes inside – hilarious! Then appreciate the extra fine quality this group puts into this music. Taking elements of various sorts of historical jazz, R & B, western swing and near rock & roll – these guys know their shit – there are some very fine vocals that wander around Tom Waits territory, a neat-o spoken word thing (eight and 13) and a killer Caravan (11.) Highest praises for the fiddle (also the vocalist), sax, bass and drums.. the others ain’t bad either! For once a modern/retro small jazz group that can do original stuff that feels new and old at the same time – not an easy task! Extra Swank Quality – now we gotta get their first record… *review by David Richoux
