Tyrone Brown String Sextet: Song Of The Sun
I found the standards more provocative than the originals. John Blake’s solo violin “All The Things You Are” is riveting. “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise” gently swings as do all of the songs under the direction and steady pulse of Brown. All of the playing is top notch. This disc will appeal to those fans of the Kronos and Turtle Island String quartets.
