Label: LA Modern Jazz Series
He's Not Quite You; Elijah; Gemini; Home at Last; Roxanne.
Each track on Gemini, the new album from pianist, singer and composer Adrianne Duncan, is a mini-suite in its own right. Duncan draws upon her background in classical music and jazz to create her rich sonic palettes; her dense harmonies and often unconventional structures leave room for improvisation and melodic development. The ensemble of world-class Los Angeles jazz musicians on the album include Nick Mancini on vibraphone, Dan Lutz on bass, Jimmy Branly on drums, Katisse Buckingham on sax and flute and John Tegmeyer on clarinet. “‘Roxanne’ opens with an off-kilter, stutter-step vibraphone declaration... A particularly fine take on the tune, from a particularly promising jazz artist.” Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz
