ANTON SCHWARTZ: Flash Mob
AntonJazz, 2014

STRAIGHTAHEAD JAZZ – The 5th release from this Bay Area tenor saxophonist (who abandoned a Stanford Ph.D. in artificial intelligence to follow his muse) is easy to like, full of catchy, satisfying original material. The band includes Menlo Park native Taylor Eigsti on piano, and trumpeter Dominick Farinacci is a really good fit too.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9

1. 6:09 – upbeat churning groove; bright piano & sax solos
2. 5:09 – slinky melody, dragging swamp feel, nice trumpet, hopping sax
3. 7:48 – drum intro; tight horns & rolling turbulence; piano takes sudden flight
4. 6:49 – cute little melody with a celtic drone, gets perky in middle
5. 6:33 – lazy, bluesy, so nice: trumpet/bass duo break, soulful sax
6. 7:52 – upbeat odd-meter tune, light driving groove becomes forceful
7. 7:19 – lovely Kenny Dorham ballad, muted trumpet leads, eloquent solos
8. 4:28 – perky Thelonious Monk riff theme gets a New Orleans feel
9. 6:07 – relaxed, meandering tune, flowing toward mystery
10. 4:14 – upbeat swing with a bit of swagger, sax lays it out
11. 4:29 – slow romantic ballad, just sax & piano
