David Boswell – “The Story Behind The Story” My Quiet Moon Records
David Boswell
On his sixth and latest jazz release, guitarist David Boswell is surrounded by some very notable jazz artists in what is a collection of highly melodic jazz. My first thought, and about the first notation I made, was “traditional jazz.” As I listened more, I realized that assessment was not especially accurate. There are also superb passages of a more upbeat, seemingly funk embellished smooth jazz also at work. Jimmy Haslip of the Yellowjackets fame plays bass and even wrote one of the tracks. Andy Snitzer, a smooth jazz saxophonist, also lends a hand in the horn section. Boswell is a skilled guitarist and he displays those skills in abundance. I got the feeling I was listening to music that would be well suited to a Sunday morning on the back porch. In “Story,” Boswell slips back and forth between traditional and smooth jazz, melodic and sometimes upbeat, and does so with impunity.

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
