MUSIC REVIEW BY Phillip McNally, Cadence Magazine

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

On (1) the piano is replaced with guitar, and Aaron Lington in the "tenor chair" is sporting a baritone. He's got a rude, rich sound on the instrument that plays well off the delicacy of the rest of the 5tet. The heart of the recording is "The Ravenspurn Collection," a suite of six English folk tunes arranged anew by trumpeter Paul Tynan. This suite is based on Ralph Vaughan Williams's composition "Six Studies in English Folksong for Cello and Piano," but rather than a Jazz arrangement of the Vaughan Williams pieces, Tynan has gone back to the root materials to find vehicles for improvisation. Yet despite the Celtic sources, Tynan and Lington and compatriots come up with a wonderful and totally American Jazz sound, and it makes (1) a solid mainstream set based on some sweet melodic improvisation.
