MUSIC REVIEW BY Scott Yanow, All Music Guide

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

The co-op quartet Big Neighborhood performs catchy originals that stretch the modern mainstream of jazz. A particularly tight unit that has each of the four musicians thinking in similar directions, Big Neighborhood features concise solos, a colorful group sound, some tricky time signatures, and distinctive voices in altoist Chris Fagan and guitarist David White (who also plays guitar synthesizer). All of the music on their two-CD release could have fit on a single disc, but the musicians in Big Neighborhood wanted it to form two separate sets that evolved logically from beginning to end, as if they were playing the music in a club. The performances range from the explorative, to the melodic "Lena Sofia" (which is in nine/four time during the solos) and are both quite original and pleasing. Recommended.
