Album Review

Cohen, Greg – “Golden State” – [Relative Pitch Records]

humana   8/3/2014   CD, Jazz

I always feel pretty lucky to listen to the new music coming into KFJC, but with this one I am particularly delighted. Bassist Cohen is joined by Bill Frisell on guitar for some songs Cohen penned (except for 3 tracks), and from start to finish, there is no question that this tribute to Cohen’s home state of California is sparkling. The sleeve notes are a must-read in order to learn the significance behind each song. “Fino Mornasco” came to be when Cohen was lost on his way on a mountain road; his GPS may not have been working, but his songwriting chops were intact. Have fun and stay gold as you listen.
