Equity and Social Justice Quartet, The – “Whisper of Flowers, The” – [Edgetone Records]
This CD is as uplifting and well-done as the intention that inspired it. Double bassist Markus Hunt conceived the songs and the project, the proceeds of which benefit the Homeless Children’s Network in San Francisco. The music is straight-ahead jazz, upbeat and listenable, and the sax, trumpet, and drums (and of course the double bass) work together to make the experience a pleasant one. Enjoy!!!
