Origin Story by The Richard Nelson Quintet

Origin Story is the latest release of guitarist Richard Nelson’s which brings together behemoth trumpeter Don Stratton, saxophonist Tim O'Dell, bassists Sam Sherry and Greg Loughman and drummer Steve Grover, sparking an undeniable synergy in which interplay and second-shot proficiency are in the ranking. This results in an airy pearl.

With this endeavor, Nelson knits various shapes and styles into pieces driven by bop accents, satiric harmonic lines and blasting trumpet parts. What’s more, the quintet draws a boundary between progressive jazz and improvised summons. Thence, The Richard Nelson Quintet is prosperous within a jumble of euphonic arrangements, whether it is a loping bop groove or free/improvisational landscapes.

Nelson and trumpeter Don Stratton do some over indulging on occasion while also relinquishing spirited explorations flooded with hankering lines and bright soloing. The Richard Nelson Quintet dwells by an abstruse and artful air while softly digging up into progressive spaces to coincide with the rhythm section’s hobbling pulses and gravitating impulsions. Eventually the melody and sequences are invented over sneaky expositions that appear to spice Nelson’s quintet reservoir ensemble of planned execution.

Nelson’s adroitness intermingle heterogeneous thematic incursions with lavish grist of improvisation and explorative sequences. Origin Story breeds inborn interplaying adding a new attribute to Nelson’s consoling approach.
