Album Review

Connah’s, Graham Sour Note 7 – “Gurney to the Lincoln Center.. ” – [Rastascan Records]

Thurston Hunger   9/4/2005   CD, Jazz

Alice in Wonderland-the jazz musical?’ Scat-
hop post-bop. An exceptional septet, Composer
Connah is the piano at the center o the vortex,
and his nimble playing will send Shipp shivers
up and down your spine keys. Great interplay
between (old New Klezmerian) Ben Goldberg on
clarinet, and Rob Suddut(no slack saxophonifier
he). Most inspiration player: Elliot H Kavee
is like a jockey at the drum kit, keeping the
horses galloping. This has a nearly frantic
place for the most part. The Charming Jewlia
often leads the pack, breathlessly wordful
and often melodically escorted by at least
Connah or Goldberg. “Ondine” will likely be a
funky crowd-pleaser. For all the dizzy chart
chases and solos…this is remarkably not
cluttered. Miles of smiles, the Sour’s sweet,
and Graham’s crackers!
