New York group Reverend Zen has its debut album, Angels, Blues & the Crying Moon
(Blackjack Music, 2006), and it as quickly garnered music industry acclaim around the world. Platitudes aside, Reverend Zen's true genius lies in its music. The album is everything a great album should be: melodies that hang in your head like an old friend, dead-on drum tracks, bad-ass guitar solos, and subtleties that slowly reveal themselves, supporting lyrics of wit, introspection and cultural commentary.
A decade of tempering until just the right balance of every needed ingredient was achieved, Angels, Blues, & the Crying Moon is proving worth the wait. It's now taking Reverend Zen's mix of rock and jazz to the world stage.
AAJ Contributor and Cross Harp Chronicles publisher David King spoke with the man behind Reverend Zen, drummer Jack Evans, about the 10-year genesis of Reverend Zen's debut album, it's incredibly broad acceptance and garnering of accolades, and where the group is going next.
