Product description

Product Description

Following his two highly acclaimed albums for Motema, 'Signing' and 'Wish Upon a Star', vibraphonist extraordinaire Joe Locke releases his most personable and accessible quartet recording to date. 'Lay Down My Heart' consists of gorgeous renditions of blues and ballads from Bill Withers to Bonnie Raitt and features David Finck on bass and Jaimeo Brown on drums.

Joe Locke is widely considered to be one of the major voices of his instrument, long known to be a soloist capable of stunning physical power and broad emotional range. He had already played with Dizzy Gillespie, Pepper Adams and Mongo Santamaria before he was out of high school. His more than 30 CDs as a soloist have established him as the exhilarating composer and band leader that he is considered today. Locke consistently ranks at the top of all critics and readers polls and was presented with three Jazz Journalists Association's Mallet Player of the Year awards.

Personnel: Joe Locke (vibes), Ryan Cohan (piano), David Finck (bass), Jaimeo Brown (drums)


'The nine tracks of this set are perfect Locke material - ballads and blues which invite the tender approach, but which, with his superb quartet, he gently expands into clouds of ever-changing harmony.' -- The Observer, (Gave Gelly) * * * *

'Subtitled Blues & Ballads Volume 1 but that belies the funky swinging feel of some of the more memorable tracks by his quartet - notably the groovy opener Ain't No Sunshine and the wonderfully catchy Bittersweet, one of numerous tunes that showcases the rapport between Locke and his dynamic pianist Ryan Cohan.' -- Scotland On Sunday, (Alison Kerr) * * * *

'Joe Locke has a personal voice, fluency to spare and a sound that shimmers with the metallic soul of Milt Jackson...he really is a very good player, and doesn't put a note out of place on the entire set.'

--Jazzwise, (Mike Hobart), August 2013
