Fiona's Comments

Consummate delivery comes as standard. While "Broken Toy" may be a title that evokes scenes of small children crying it also has a dash of Oliver Nelson's "Patterns". Suitable for all ages.

About the Album

"Broken Toy," from vibraphonist Joe Locke's latest Motéma Music release, Lay Down Your Heart - Blues & Ballad Vol 1, featuring pianist Ryan Cohan, bassist David Finck and drummer Jaimeo Brown. A sweet ballad, written by Locke for his 2002 duo recording with pianist Frank Kimbrough, The Willow (Omnitone), here it's given a beautiful quartet treatment that unfolds gradually, featuring a particularly fine solo from the vibraphonist.
