The Derek Bronston Group: Ebb
Guitarist/composer, Derek Bronston signifies yet another up and coming artist emanating from New York City’s generally vibrant jazz scene. With his second release, the artist continues to meld sonorous melodies and atmospheric choruses with climactic overtures. Besides, he enjoys an extremely fruitful association with his counterpart, saxophonist, Lisa Parrott who resides as a near perfect foil in the soloing arena. However, Ms. Parrott often establishes the melody lines atop Bronston’s intricately executed chord progressions and circuitous single note leads. Whereas the rhythm section manipulates the ebb and flow in altogether non-intrusive fashion.

Essentially, Bronston does not overwhelm the listening audience with technical gymnastics yet fabricates motifs with an undeniable sense of purposefulness. The band engages in climactically driven improvisational discourses, abetted by Ms. Parrott’s warmly executed lines and sweet-tempered lyricism. Otherwise, this band is in no rush to make its point as they perpetuate relaxed grooves via oscillating undercurrents and dreamlike passages. Derek Bronston’s star is on the rise! Recommended.
