All In The Family. Last year saw Buck and John Pizzarelli’s Contrasts. This year it is the Coryell posse. The guitar playing here is fluid and exciting by all string benders. Whether originals or standards, the Coryell clan perform with an empathetic tour de force. Murali Coryell possesses an amazingly soulful voice that he applies to Al Green’s “Love and Happiness”. He reaches into the gutbucket for Muddy’s via the Allman Brothers Band “Trouble No More”. The tone of the disc is one of an “unplugged” personality. All things acoustic here, providing the music with an on-the-back-porch quality. This is just a collection of tunes put together by a talented family for their entertainment and given through their generosity.

The first jazz record I bought was a Verve compilation of 10 LPs! I saved for more than six months and gave it to myself as a
Christmas present. I was about 18 years old. Since then, my love for jazz has taken me to program the only jazz radio station in
Mexico City, Horizonte 107.9 FM.
