Stuart Hart: Inner Voice
This is pretty solid — if not terribly original — fusion from the bespectacled, Paul Reed Smith-wielding Stuart Hart. With a rotating roster that includes the likes of Gary Thomas on sax, Paul Bollenback on second guitar, Evan Miller on keys, Matt Garrison on bass, and Dennis Chambers on drums, Hart delivers funky tunes and high-energy, fuzzed-out guitar playing. There are echoes of the Yellowjackets, Scott Henderson, Electric Outlet -era John Scofield, that sort of thing. Paul Bollenback’s clean sound contrasts well with Hart’s fuzztone on "Speaquinox" (great title, huh?) and the latin-flavored "The Green Pedal." In terms of all-out smoking and impressive ensemble work, "First Impressions" takes the cake. On the other hand, "Right from the Right," the longest track, is also the dullest. Hart’s writing can be uneven, but he’s a promising player, and he’s got the right guys backing him.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
