Sisters Euclid: Run Neil Run
With a program of nine songs by Neil Young, Sisters Euclid offers a tribute that blends jazz and blues with hard-hitting rock. Elements from Young's days with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young show up, but the emphasis leans toward his country blues lines.

Sisters Euclid, which is based in Toronto, is Kevin Breit's band. The group's connection with Neil Young runs deeper than an appreciation for his folk and country appetite. Young was born in Toronto. This tribute album honors a native son who has gained worldwide fame for his fiery guitar as well as his original songwriting.

Love is a Rose comes with a comfortable country twang, while "Ohio meanders through lonely city streets, and "Cinnamon Girl simmers gently in the shade of a majestic and aging tree. Breit's guitar interprets each selection with moody impressions that flow seamlessly around a central theme. Heart of Gold lets the band drive uninterrupted on a long-distance journey through space and time while Breit slides in and out of focus. His electric guitar exhausts the impression long before closing up, so the band repeats with an endless scenario.

"Long May You Run rambles slowly over a country texture that blends folk and blues into a melancholic impression. The testament that Sisters Euclid offers Neil Young comes straight from the heart with empathetic clarity.

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!
