Album Review

Bern Nix Trio – “Alarms and Excursions” – [New World]

Cousin Mary   1/30/2010   CD, Jazz

Jazz guitarist Bern Nix was a member of Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time Band and that influence shows. He listened to Wes Montgomery and Charlie Christian and those influences show, too. But these are just influences, Nix takes jazz guitar into a whole new realm. These tracks are rather free and modern with the one exception of “Just Friends” which is rather traditional, almost soft guitar jazz.

Very intriguing, melodic, guitar fans should check this out.
