Album Review

Johnson, Max – “Hermit Music” – [Unbroken Sounds]

davidjames   3/5/2023   A Library

A most unusual recording. Hermit Music is virtuosic, expressive solo contrabass.   

Five contrasting rhythmic/harmonic schemes — both pizzicato and arco — reveal a highly malleable and wide-open creative space.  These are pensive, reflective moments; the master composer effectively draws us into a very personal world.  From the album notes, “This album represents who I am right now, and I am proud to share it with you”.  All of the tracks are of excellent quality.
