5.0 out of 5 stars Seeds from the underground - Sprouting with creativity., 22 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seeds from the Underground (Audio CD)
The long awaited new studio album from Detroit Altoist Kenny Garrett is finally here and worth the wait I may add. Garrett doesn't record that often but when he does he normally produces quality which is what we have here in "Seeds from the "Underground".
All tunes are written by Garrett and are influenced by the people that have influenced his career past and present. As always there are good mix of influences ranging from straight ahead jazz and spiritual through to Funk and World influences.
In comparrison to Garrett's last to studio albums,this one is less straight ahead than "Standard of Language" and more harmonically rich than "Beyond the Wall".As always ,Garrett's tone is as full and hard sounding as any altoist on the planet and i also feel there is an attempt to make his approach less boppish and more spiritual on this album. With most of the tunes being lively and spirtual and with a percussionist added to several tracks, this makes for a pleasant,varied and highly enjoyable listening experience.

I was toying with the idea of getting this new release by Mr Garrett but your review has helped me tip the scales, so thank you very much. While I'm at it, thanks also for recommending Joe Martin's "Not By Chance" when you commented on my recent review of Brad Mehldau's new CD. You were spot on; it's a great album and Mr Mehldau outdoes himself on it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'll be checking out your profile from now on, to see what else you think it good. Keep up the great work!
