It's Been So Long by Brooks Tegler

One hears straight up all the wonderful artistic shoulders jazz drummer Brooks Tegler has stood on over the years, as you peruse his new disc. Plus, Brooks offers his personal panoply of musical history as he & his group take us through the music of Irving Berlin to Count Basie with a modern, yet early & contemporary elegance as it were. Tegler & the group offer us a straightforward swing idiom, & this by default enhances the continuity of their ideas. Tegler understands his job well as he expresses his music...........Using richly dissonant chords......................And his renditions swing in hard drive...............While his ballads remain both steamy & romantic. As listeners the total spectrum of our musical tastes are heightened & we emerge the better for the experience.
