Shawn Purcell – “Symmetricity” – Armored Records

Pittsburg, PA native Shawn Purcell spends most of his time in the Washington, DC area as a jazz guitarist, arranger and composer. He also serves as an educator in jazz studies. He has performed at jazz clubs and worked as a session player for a host of Jazz artists and even played on quite a few Grammy winning performances. His latest release, “Symmetricity,” is technically traditional jazz, however, it is done in a firmly regimented improv style. While Purcell is the lead guitarist, he shares each of the ten tracks with horn sections and does so seamlessly. Strings and horns blend beautifully and moves back and forth in a very organic way.  He has been called a “fresh addition to the modern jazz scene.” His music is certainly so. All in all, a very good work and very much recommended for all traditional jazz fans.

Overall: 8

Sonics: 8

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.
