New York Voices: Reminiscing In Tempo

Read "Reminiscing In Tempo" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

What the quartet New York Voices achieves with their performance of Dave Brubeck's “Blue Rondo Á La Turk" disguised as “Round, Round, Round" by lyricist Lauren Kinhan is nothing short of a schizophrenic jazz “Carmina Burana." Lithe, muscular, and smart, the performance is dense and thought-provoking, deftly navigating between its disparate 9/8 and 4/4 sections.
