Lose Yer Blues
This CD commemorates the tenth year of Talkeetna, Alaska's Jazz duo, RARE FORM. It's especially exciting because the playlist, except for two tunes, are all originals. This talented musical team brings us to another level with this music. The cuts here are thoughtful and musical . Both musicians have put it all on the table in the writing and playing. Each cut has it's own voice and intrigue. Murray's "Smoke and Mirrors" elicits feelings of wistfulness in it's interesting changes and melody. Listen to Rocco's solo on his tune Mischevious Mystic, and the haunting melody in "Don't Wait too long" The inclusion of Petite Fleur, Sidney Bechet'soulful tune (played beautifully) and Dizzy's tune "Down Under" are the result of their popularity with the Rare Form fans. Enjoy this CD, it is a joyful celebration of ten years of work and friendship.
