5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best jazz releases of 2011, 21 Sep 2011
This review is from: James Farm: Joshua Redman, Aaron Parks, Matt Penman, Eric Harland (Audio CD)
This may well slip under the radar of many a jazz fan, but the music on James Farm is seriously good and worthy of attention. Compositions, playing and recording quality are excellent, and the variety of influences and styles works convincingly well across the tracks on offer. Joshua Redman may never have sounded better: his playing is punchy and dramatic when needed, silky and soft when required. Harland - very much one of the top drummers of the moment - underpins the proceedings with fine stick and brush work, and even contributes a manic, but enjoyable composition of his own to the mix.

There is a contemporary, vibrant but accessible feel to James Farm - the future of jazz seems to be in good hands. Worth investigating by anyone keen to explore the current modern jazz scene - I don't think it will disappoint.
