Album Review

C.O.M.A. – “California Outside Music Associates” – [Edgetone Records]

Cousin Mary   2/1/2009   CD, Jazz

Central Valley musicians Dax Compise and Brian Clark (grads of Stockton???s UOP) join John Vaughn. These fine players combine traditional elements such as bouncy beats, klezmer, swing, and world music with ???free jazz??? squawky improvisation at breakneck speed. Edgetone founder Rent Romus joins on 2 tracks playing C-melody saxophone (pitched in the key of C, larger than an alto and smaller than a tenor).

PGM: Track 3 begins very quietly (wood flute) , track 4 starts with a lengthy percussion intro, track 5 is spare, spooky with bowed bass.

A good listen!
