Compared To What by George Kahn

First, let's pay kudos to Kahn's choice of the recording studiowhere he brought his CD project to fruition. The sound that emits from the disc is a study in sound dynamics........Might I say: Beautifully engineered!! The 'mainstream' aspect of the project is maintained through the group's combined sense of musical, yet artistic wit......This, all balanced by Kahn's harmonic perception & polyphonic jazz logic. The group handles the complexity of their internal accompaniment with copious tonal color, & an imperative indicative of how much they enjoy playing together. This CD will give you a better take on such jazz oriented notions as: thematic improvising, aggressive rhythmic articulation, harmonically complex keyboard style, & a solid, strong interplay between consummately trained journeymen jazz musicians. George, you certainly exceeded my expectations.
