Album Review

MYRON WALDEN: Countryfied
Demi Sound, 2010

JAZZ/BLUES – There’s a strong southern flavor in this musical stew. It’s a slow-tempo, down-home blend of soul jazz, blues, r&b, and gospel that might recall King Curtis, Ray Charles or Booker T., but it has a modern sensibility too. Walden’s delicious tenor sax meets electric guitar, organ and drums, all keepin’ it real. Oh yes. But I wish there were a few more uptempo numbers to balance out all the ballads.

Myron Walden : tenor saxophone
Oz Noy : guitar
Ron Oswanski : organ
Kenneth Salters : drums

Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9

1. 6:20 – relaxed slide/march – guitar is all blues, organ glides, sax testifies
2. 6:18 – very slow, with a country-gospel twang and some great sax soloing
3. 4:53 – uplifting soul ballad, walking rhythm, vocal-like sax melody. Nice!
4. 4:05 – bluesy slow-dance ballad, really sweet Sam Cooke vibe
5. 4:55 – another slow ballad: a bit sappy, but heartfelt
6. 5:41 – optimistic gospel-tinged ballad, with some bluesy talkin’ guitar work
7. 5:49 – bluesy strut from back in the alley: sneaky sax, nasty little guitar
8. 5:24 – reassuring ballad: things may have been bad, but they’re OK now
9. 5:11 – slow walk, comes up from way down low; sax tells it like it is
10. 6:51 – upbeat and bluesy, turns into a sly, funky jam
11. 3:54 – fade in: a breezy midtempo soul stomp, straight-up sound
