Rosco Blur : tenor & soprano sax
1 New World Order (4:04)
An album with a pervasive groove, adding spoken words to improvised jazz; it features Paul Plimley showing his great versatility on piano, + west-coast percussionist Dylan van der Schyff. This is a dynamic mixture with catchy melodies, exotic ambiences, kind of lounge music with attitude. Rosco's performance on sax can be passionate and reveal a gritty sound when the music is energetic, or soothing when it turns moody; it also leaves space for creative involvement from his friends. A promising first album.
