When it comes to music, don't make the mistake of assuming that the "big" labels have a monopoly on talent Accurate may be a "small" label but Seager is surely a musician worthy of your consideration. Working within the trio format, this Boston native has produced an album that's richly detailed and very rewarding. Bassist Dan Greenspan and drummer Dan Rieser share equal space with Seager and their creative interplay reminds me of the classic work of the late, great Bill Evans. Seager's playing exhibits the same soft touch and love of lyrical chord progressions. The 10 song program is equally divided between Seager's strong originals and standards from such giants as Miles Davis and Thelonius Monk. You may have to "special order" Resonance from your favorite CD shop but I assure you your efforts will be amply rewarded. It's a lovely recording!
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
