Fiona's Comments

If your dead elders rolled over during the 1.20 min intro -- same. The tune itself is still identifiable, Ally has a clear, consuming tone and the arrangement is endearing.

About the Album

Ally Fiola is a saxophonist and film composer who has an affinity for soul, driving rhythms, and strong melodies. She's been inspired by artists such as Cannonball Adderley, Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus, and Preservation Hall. These influences can be heard in this debut album that features five original compositions which has a hardbop and New Orleans brass band fusion. This album also includes two pivotal standards (Mercy Mercy Mercy and Moanin') which helped shape Ally into the musician she is today.

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!
