ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Inspired by the jazz traditions of spontaneity, innovation and improvisation, The Sea Turtles move from moody romance to quirky sci-fi to jazzy surf, funk and swing - having fun all the while - and certainly with no fear of tempo,reverb and maybe even throwing down a little avant-garde on top. They like putting themselves in situations where there are musical challenges and chances to be taken. Playing primarily original instrumental songs, The Sea Turtles ride each others individual ideas throughout the songs but somehow know where they are going - and end up with a tight uplifting jazzadelic vibe that's ultimately unique and fun to listen to.

Impressive Jazzy Surf Rock CD
Get ready to hit the beach with this innovative self titled jazz-infused instrumental surf album from The Sea Turtles. This Pennsylvania based three piece band relies strictly on guitar, bass, and drums to entertain your ears. It may sound simple, but they manage to create a full and innovative sound, causing the listener at once to feel as though they are both on an island and in a jazz club . The recording quality gives a similar feel; one could imagine The Sea Turtles booming through a speaker, live or recorded, at either location. This album shows The Sea Turtles superb improvisational skills, as well as their influences, which range from the Beach Boys on guitar to the classical jazz sound on drums and bass doubtlessly influenced by a plethora of jazz predecessors. “Fastback” creates a great smooth sound with jazz guitar and classic drum and bass lines. “Paragon” features a quick tempo and presents more of a rock feel as it begins with the bassist matching every note the guitar plays. Overall, “The Sea Turtles” is a fun, innovative, and impressive album for anyone who wants to know what jazzy surf rock is all about.

Wow! (And just to impress you with how erudite I am, I will say it backwords)
This CD is great! It really sounds like these guys are just having entirely too much fun playing their music! This, of course, is good, because its infectious! Great music that doesn't get old!
