When I listened to Tom Alonso's jazz musings on THE LONG WAY HOME, I was reminded of an intricate Gershwinesque feel to the music in this outstanding collection of 7 selections. Each selection is long, pleasing, intricate, and backed with a symphonic approach that highlights the solo performances.
If you want something creative while at the same time excellent contemporary jazz in a symphonic mode with a touch of swing, this CD collection will be a highly enjoyable addition to your jazz home library collection. Excellent performances abound! Selections include "The Long Road Home," "Lullaby and Blues," "Shoebooty," among other nice compositions. Excellent production values.
For a chance of pace, purchase a copy of THE LONG ROAD HOME, for it has something to enjoy for everybody who enjoys the motifs of jazz in a contemporary setting. A winner!
