Impressions on CD

In an MTV day and age, when some public radio stations are afraid to play anything newer than from circa 1959, it is easy to understand the impression left on our younger generation that jazz was made by generations past. Happily the proclamations of jazz's death are vastly premature. It is groups such as 'East Coast Standards Time' that speak loudly and clearly the message that jazz is very much alive,thank you very much. They accomplish this though a much overlooked aspect of jazz these days namely 'original composition'. Seven of the eleven tracks on 'Impressions' are originals, and two others are new arrangements of standards. Some sonic highlights on this album for me include the beautiful flute work by Rex Wertz and Ira Sullivan check out Ira's lead on the title track) and the addition of some nice organ sounds on three tracks by Steve Davidowski. My favorite track has to be 'Silver Apples' written by guitarist Mark Boling, which has a fluid, contemporary feel and features some nice piano work by noted multi-instrumentalist Richard Drexler. The group easily moves from one rhythmic feel to another, including Latin and Brazilian - thanks to percussionist and producer Carlos Fernandez's able touch. Guitarist Rich Walker's beautiful 'Stumbin (in the footsteps of giants)' pays respectful homage to influential jazz giant John Coltrane, but I don't hear any stumblin'! I'm proud to say that we had the 2005 release from The Rich Walker Sextet (companion group to ECST), 'Bar Hop', in heavy rotation at KSJS, and we will give 'Impressions' heavy airplay as well. I anticipate a much lengthier life span for jazz, thanks to artists like East Coast Standards Time! Dr. Brad Stone Music Director KSJS-FM, San Jose, CA SPEAKING OF WES - (R.
