Jimmy Weinstein:
Sound Emotion
SOUND EMOTION coverJimmy Weinstein’s GM debut covers an impressively wide range of emotion, and the sometimes forceful sometimes gentle approach creates a remarkably fluid and dynamic program that is more than simply sound.

The lilting “Under The Bridge,” reminiscent of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin’ On,” “Fast Blues,” a 6 bar blues evolving into an intense exploration to the outer limits of jazz, the beautiful ballad “Her Melancholy Piano,” utilizing the unexpected texture of Elie Massias’ acoustic guitar, or “Fighting,” with a flat-out rock attitude over a gritty blues shuffle are but a few examples of Weinstein’s fresh compositional diversity. The tranquil yet mysterious treatment of Ornette Coleman’s “Comme il Faut” and the thoughtful use of improvised melodic counterpoint between the guitar and tenor in the standard “I’ll Remember April,” pay fine tribute to such different regions of the jazz spectrum.
