Holly Martins, The – “No. No. Yes. No.” – [Edgetone Records]
Kasey Knudsen on sax, Eric Vogler on guitar form this jazz trio with the very unique vocalist, Lorin Benedict whose scat features a somewhat German sounding made-up language. Without a rhythm section, each must handle both the role of soloist and sideman. Highly improvised, most cuts are composed by trio members with exceptions of one track each for Irving Berlin and George & Ira Gershwin.
Holly Martins (played by Joseph Cotton) is the main character in the classic film “The Third Man”.
The vocals are totally original, all cuts are greatly enjoyable.
