ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rolling Jazz Revue (rjr) has been a working creative unit out of Huntsville, Alabama since 2006. Co-founded by keyboardist Newt Johnson and guitarist Jim Cavender, the current lineup includes upright bassist Nick Walker, percussionist Jeff Woods and drummer Aaron Cox.

Their original tunes are influenced by a variety of musical genres, but always center around memorable melodies and plenty of room for improvisation. The blending of acoustic and electric instruments and the willingness to use instruments and colors from outside the mainstream jazz tradition is part of what gives their music its unique flavor (one song from the new CD uses slide guitar, for example). This also works the other way around, as when funk grooves are played on an upright bass. This emphasis on composing and arranging is strongly influenced by artists such as Weather Report, Herbie Hancock, John Scofield, early Keith Jarrett and others, and makes rjr very accessible to listeners new to jazz.

If you've ever wondered what you're supposed to envision when you listen to jazz, check out rjr's "Whistle Past The Graveyard" and "The Circle Game" videos on YouTube.
