LectroCoustic (Origin Records) by Lynn Baker Quartet
Fun, pace changing tune with serious Weather Report influence. Roller coaster emoting.
For his second OA2 release, saxophonist Lynn Baker looked to Weather Report, Joe Cocker, Steve Coleman, McCoy Tyner, and even the O'Jays for inspiration, creating a variety of contemporary compositions and grooves to explore with his electric/acoustic group. Pianist-keyboardist Eric Gunnison, bassist Bijoux Barbosa, drummer Paul Mullikin, and Baker have been musical teammates for years, making any conceptual path they decide to explore seem like a very fine idea.comments powered by Disqus
