Album Review

Reviewed 2017-01-12 
Multi-track live recordings of original compositions by pianist Mariah Parker performed at Bay area venues like Yoshi's, Freight & Salvage, etc. mixed by Ancient Future sound engineer; fusion jazz by virtuoso performers and bandleaders; almost baroque sounding with minimal number of instruments all expertly miked and mixed; applause at tail end of all tracks

No FCC's (all instrumental) ; Favorite tracks: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8

1-Infinity Minus One – 7:40-- starts with staccato keyboard chords; opens out with horns, drums, also staccato; horn melody comes in over this; catchy and smooth at the same time; soprano sax really starts to wail 2/3 way through; then back to staccato chords; applause and “thank you” at end

*2-Close Passage – 6:55 – starts with bent note Indian motif; beautifully contemplative; opens out into more traditional-sounding jazz

*3-For the Waters –6:30 – lighter, piano arpeggios with English horn and cymbals; mellow tune

**4- Torredembarra – 5:36 – strong Iberian-sounding opening with soprano sax backed by pianist and other instruments; Matthew Montfort's guitar stands out; then Paul McCandless really lets loose with soprano sax

**5 –Song for Satie – 6:12 – modal (?) bass piano chord progression starts a la Satie; Paul McCandless comes in with silken sounding English horn; lovely

***6—Sangria –6:12-- begins with delicious santour trill underneath bent notes from guitar; indescribable airiness and lightness buttressed by santour

7- Jaguar Dance –5:09 – more Latin in beat and melody; nice but not as unusual as other tracks

*8 – Milo's Moment –9:29 – hop, skip and a jump intro; long soprano sax phrases; fusion jazz with nice percussive effects with tablas and congas
