There’s a wellspring of new sound via seven CDs filled to the brim with adventurous, pioneering complexity (Saft, Evans, Garner, MND FLO), deep gutbucket blues (Lynn), exquisite songcraft (Hitt) and one raw, rollicking early-rock collection that will make your head spin like Linda Blair in “The Exorcist.”
The five CDs spotlighted this month run the gamut from gut-bucket blues and post-bop complexity to mellifluous solo piano adventures and one world-beating fusion of the Far East and the Caribbean. Get Down!!
Brave new sounds encompassing a tuba/guitar duo, ’70s-styled funk, regional blues-rock and even a meeting of the minds between The Cowsills, Beach Boys and Bangles. It’s all here.
