MUSIC REVIEW BY Kyle O'Brien, Jazz Society of Oregon

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

This is the third disc by the chamber jazz trio Storms/Nocturnes, and it cements the group as one of the tops in its genre. Pianist Geoffrey Keezer, vibraphonist Joe Locke and saxophonist Tim Garland put out textural compositions that combine the musical signatures of all three in a cohesive vision, while allowing each voice to stand on its own. The music is heavily influenced by places, reflected in the tranquility of "Her Sanctuary," the Tuscan farmhouse teeming with life in "Ripertoli," or the easy to understand "Snowfall in Central Park." Each piece paints a picture. One can almost see the snowflakes falling on Central Park in Keezer's light, cascading touch; can hear the whales in Garland's yearning bass clarinet on "A Big Wavy Thing / Infinite Blue"; can feel the introspective solitude of "Tiger Lily's DIY Paradise." It's chamber jazz that truly works, thanks to the vision and prowess of the three musicians. It's modern composition that has something to say.
