New Album Releases Project 2020-10-4

By: |

Wild and Woolly are the words to come to mind as I pen these liner notes:

How can I say NO to the SHATNER? This album of his entitled The Blues will become a classic. If for nothing else, in 20 years, his version of Sunshine for Your Love will be covered by The Family Guy’s Stewie Griffin and instantly morph into a cult classic.

Malia’s Garden of Eve took me nicely by surprise. A truly decent effort all the way around. I found my listening through more than a few times.

John Daversa Quintet’s Cuarantena came out of the left field and I’m glad that it did.  The album felt just so personal, especially for these special times.

Paul Carrack’s Another Side of Paul Carrack just goes to show his versatility. I normally bristle when artists come out with an album comprised primarily of American popular standards, but as I’ve been listening to more and more of Carrack, he is truly one of music’s most underrated vocalists.

Tomoya Nakai’s SWING: JAZZ with the Koto is truly something. Zing go the string of his Koto, a Japanese stringed instrument, which has to be heard in this content, if for no other reason to introduce oneself to Japan’s national instrument in a wholly unconventional manner.

Robert Plant’s Digging Deep: Subterranea is here to tell us that Robert still has it and is capable of bringing it with maturity and class.

Status Quo’s two-track EP, Face the Music reminded me why I was such a big fan of the band back in the day, and for those unfamiliar, here’s your opportunity to look for their albums in record ships and/or your favourite streaming service.

And then there are these Re-Issues:

  • Pierre Fournier – Dvorák: Concerto pour violoncelle No. 2, Trio Dumky
  • Steve Maii & Teresa Bright – Catching a Wave
  • Thelonious Monk – Palo Alto
  • Walter Bishop Jr. – Keeper of My Soul
