Брайан, наконец-то, перестал терзать нас запилами "а-ля Джими" (или типа: "Bass Ackwards" с "металлом" (:), а просто сделал то, что ему удается лучше всего - собрал замечательных (супер!) музыкантов и записал отличный диск, с целой серией великолепных работ участников...
P.S. Всегда уважал Gary Meek_a, и здесь он знатно выступил, и на Rory Lowery... был на высоте, и на Compared... как он классно отозвался на пикколо Брайана! P.S.2 Не в обиду :)) Винни..., на 05. Little New Old School я бы, конечно, лучше Дейва (Dave Weckl) послушал, это его вещь (кто понимает ... да, и на I’m Just Sayin’ тоже :)
"Virtuoso ensemble, ten piece horn section and full orchestra string section propel the eclectic mix of jazz”
They’ll never play this one in an elevator unless Otis invents one with swinging doors. Brian Bromberg hasn’t made an album in awhile now that swings so hard, swings so audaciously and quite so sweet. For this, his 20th solo collection, he has assembled a ten piece horn section that plays tight, play bright and struts it. The strings provide the canvas for Bromberg to paint on, but believe me, he doesn’t just color outside the lines, he gets some on the walls. It’s hard charging, straight ahead, flammable swing, but with a mix of hues, flavors and other delectable sensual pleasures from city-fied to southern fried and liberally sprinkled with funk and soulful balladry. As you listen to this album, one thing becomes clear. Bromberg’s bass work is somewhere way north of marvelous. And, where did he find a guitar player that could keep up? Well, he didn’t. Everywhere you ‘think’ you’re hearing a guitar, that’s Bromberg playing a piccolo bass tuned to sound like a guitar. He plays both acoustic and electric basses and acoustic and steel string piccolo. It makes for great solo and melody translations. To pull this swinging sensation off, it took a special group of musicians Alex Acuna, Gannin Arnold, Charlie Bisharat, Randy Brecker, Vinnie Colaiuta, George Duke, Bela Fleck, Mitch Forman, Larry Goldings, Jeff Lorber, Gary Meek and Tom Zink among them, and they cut the album live in the studio over a two day period...

Compared to what? The thing that makes Brian Bromberg work so well is the predictability of his unpredictability! Makes perfect sense right? Compared To That is the first of three artistically diverse releases set for Bromberg this year and while the buzz is that it may be his best since Downright Upright, it may in fact be Bromberg's finest release to date. "Compared To That" is that musical happy place somewhere between contemporary/modern jazz but with an old school sensibility. Bromberg is not reinventing the musical wheel. What Brian Bromberg does so incredibly well here is expand his sound and push the music forward. Guest artists include such diverse talents as Jeff Lorber, Bela Fleck and Randy Brecker combined with a deceptively subtle swing of a walking bass line punctuated with attitude so if this release doesn't make your musical back leg shake you may want to see if your autopsy report is ready... criticaljazz.com
