Fiona's Comments

Maxey is on a torrid pace to release six albums in a year time. It's an admirable goal, but, ultimately, it's the quality of the music he's releasing that has earned him respect. This is the second of that six. More bluesy than first album Incarnate and more grooves than third album Language of Sound and Spirit. Great stuff. Organ man Charette will be featured as the AAJ dotd for his own album on 4/30/12. Check it out.

About the Album

Approach is album number 2 in a series of 6 records in 12 months. Intent is defined as something that is intended, an aim or purpose, meaning, or the state of mind when one carries out an action. For me the value of music is its ability to reach a listener in a transformative manner. I've found music to have a flow of meaning, love and purpose that I've sought over the years to access and participate in. My intent is to be consciously involved in that flow. Personnel: Josh Maxey (guitar), Brian Charette (organ), and McClenty Hunter (drums).

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!
