Big Blue Line (feat. David Phelps, Chris Dahlgren, Michael Jefry Stevens & Eric Halvorson)

by Lily White

Emotional and smart, Lily White's quintet is at the height of synchronicity on this album. Their original compositions are fresh and surprising--a mix of through-composed music and free improvisation--all under the guise of Jazz.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Like a passing thought, "Heaven" goes where it wants to go. With a fast "free bop" section at the top, it soon mutates into something altogether different. Always changing, never staying in one place for long, this piece somehow stays together and remains one of my favorites. "Hide and Seek" begins as a march in 7/4 and then changes to a big-rock-ballad feel for the guitar solo. By the time they get to the piano solo, it almost feels like 4/4, but it's not. "Muy Dramatico" is a romantic and moody piece. I like the raw sound of the tenor and the piano alone. The drama is undone by a group improvisation near the end, which ends abruptly--like a case of the hiccups during a juicy love scene. "Still" begins with a slow swing groove, switching to double and finally quadruple time. Michael Jefry Stevens wrote "Cowboy" with alternating bars of 12/8 and 11/8. This western "limp" combines with a beautiful and eerie melody. "Simon" is the only blues on the album, but beginning will fool you. "Thelonious Mink" is a tribute to the music of Charles Mingus and Thelonius Monk--simple yet quirky.
