A Little More Than The Blues by C. Michael Bailey
A Little More Than the Blues by Jack BowersMore articles about Jeff Zelnick
The Heart of the Matter. All of Zelnick’s compositions are vintage Hard, Post Bop Fare. The title track recalls the complex blues heads of Oliver Nelson on his great recordings. All of the songs, save “C’est Si Bon” are Zelnick originals and betray a thorough understanding of the Adderley Brothers, Lee Morgan, Kenny Dorman, Jackie McLean, Art Blakey, etc. On the whole, A Little More Than The Blues is a very enjoyable recording, but nothing new.
