Product notities

The Rfg Quintet is comprised of Evan Oberla on trombone, Matteo Amburgy on the keyboards and organ, Nathan Smith on the bass, Maxwell Button on the drums, and Kevin O'Neill on saxophone and flute. This band is the culmination of each voice in the band working with the others to a higher music place with a mantra to always play original music and refresh existing music with a new angle...and whatever else they feel like playing. The band has become very tight, playing off each other's ideas naturally, a testament to the maturity and talent that these musicians possess. Review by Scott Yanow: Although the musicians in the largest cities (particularly New York) tend to get the most publicity and notice from jazz critics, every medium-size city in the U.S. has it's own jazz scene and local talents. In Columbus, Ohio, the Rfg Quintet keeps hard bop alive and stays quite busy. The group, which has been together for four years, is led by trombonist Evan Oberla and also features Kevin O'Neill on tenor, soprano and flute, keyboardist Matteo Amburgy, bassist Nate Smith, and drummer Maxwell Button. Due to it's trombone/tenor frontline, the Rfg Quintet may at first remind one of the Jazz Crusaders a little. But it becomes apparent, as one listens to the music on May Your Vice Be Nice, that the group has it's own sound and approach to playing jazz. The opening "Change Of Pace," which (as with all but one piece) was composed by Evan Oberla, is a fine straight ahead number that features the leader and introduces the group's sound. "May Your Vice Be Nice" has a funky melody reminiscent in spots of Horace Silver, some fine solos by O'Neill on soprano, Oberla and Amburgy (who is on electric piano), and two different alternating tempos during each chorus. The uptempo "Death Watch Muffin" gives O'Neill and Amburgy opportunities to romp over the chord changes. "E'z Waltz" has a quirky melody that inspires Evan Oberla's most rewarding solo of the project along with fine spots for bassist Smith and Amburgy's organ. "Swash Dance" is a moody ballad while "Groove Clock" fits it's name, grooving happily while Smith's walking bass drives the band at a strutting tempo while keeping perfect time. "Upgrade" has a Latin feel that the rhythm section embraces. To close the CD, the melody of Wayne Shorter's "Yes or No" is given a unique treatment before the group digs into the jazz standard. But rather than engage in excessive descriptions of the music, suffice it to say that May Your Vice Be Nice makes for a very enjoyable listen by a fine band. And for those listeners who make it to Columbus, Ohio in the near future, be sure to catch the Rfg Quintet live. I suspect that they put on great live shows too. Scott Yanow, author of ten books including Trumpet Kings, Bebop, Jazz On Record 1917-76 and Jazz On Film.
