Mightily impressive jazz guitar Shawn Purcell – SYMMETRICITY: I’ve actually listened to Shawn’s mightily impressive jazz guitar on an album with his wife, Darden Purcell, called “Where The Blues Begin“… this new outing, though, has him leading, and folks – you’re not going to believe how hip his playing is – watch his promo clip first, please…
…you can watch a whole host more of his videos when you SUBSCRIBE to Shawn’s YouTube channel (as I did).
In addition to Shawn’s high-energy jazz guitar, you’ll also hear Darden Purcell – Voice; Luis Hernandez – Tenor Saxophone; Todd Simon – Piano, Hammond C3, Fender Rhodes; Regan Brough – Acoustic Bass and Stockton Helbing – Drums and Cymbals… their performance on track 7, “Missed It By An Inch“, is one of the coolest jazz guitar originals I’ve ever heard – by Shawn, of course, and Todd’s organ is KILLER on this tune… DJ’s are going to be plugging this in frequently!
Darren’s beautiful vocal on the 8:11 closer, “Norm’s View“, has some wonderful Rhodes as accompaniment, and just SHINES with life and the living of it… Shawn’s guitar solo (along with the other artists’ solos) SMOKES it. This track is the one that made me decide to add this to my iPhone collection (something reserved for only the best jazz).
Of the ten tantalizing tunes, my choice for personal favorite was easy to make… Shawn’s original, “Red Velvet Cake“, helps you to soar above all the daily trials… the changes on this song are vibrant… I just LOVED this song!
I give Shawn and all his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99. Get more information on Shawn’s page for the release.
