Henry, Ashley - Beautiful Vinyl Hunter CD (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-190758915821
“You love great music, especially jazz, but you've grown tired of so much of the same old, same old? Tired of "waiting for the solo" on most jazz since the late 1990s? Tired of the discordant crap being passed off as "sophisticated"? Wondering what happened to the great jazz musicians who can compose a song you can groove to, play like nobody's business, but serve the music rather than an ego?
] Took me about 5 years to get my Esbjorn Svensson Trio out of my CD player, then it took a couple years to get Robert Glasper Trio out of it. Ashley Henry has been occupying my streamer / hi-res player since I heard him about 5 weeks ago and I think this album will be worn out for years to come.
Every song is addictive. His group plays as an integrated unit serving the music rather than a pianist backed by side-men. His lyricism seems rooted in optimism, intensity, and joy rather than much of the self-loathing identity jazz of late. Beautiful Vinyl Hunter is nominated for best jazz album of the year in the UK. I'd vote for it as best jazz album of the decade.”
