From the music of Pete Townsend, Paul McCartney, John Lennon et al...........And on to jazzer Joe Sample, smooth jazz guitarist Kevin Russell shows us his viable, contemporary, yet renaissance side of the jazz idiom, i.e. Lennon's 'Come Together,' Gaye's 'What's Goin'On,' to Sample's 'Put It Where You Want It.' Russell's artistry seems to reach for that higher level of passionate expression as he takes all the chances a true jazz musician is wont to take. This is a talent worthy of positive comparison to the finer jazz artists who have preceded him. I don't mean to sound presumptuous only to say: This CD project could be Russell's most brilliant and adventurous workto date. You decide!!
