New Change by Sarah Reich is a wonderful fusion of jazz and tap, bringing the long rich history between the two into the modern aesthetic. Reich, a teacher and purveyor of the tap discipline, combines music with the rhythm and soul of tap to create a recording that is captivating. The dancer is a percussive instrumentalist here, interacting with the music and musicians, not just being accompanied by them. The production is clever in its presentation and use of story and array of musical styles. Reich, who co-created most of the music on the recording, is aided by the musicianship of Sam Barsh and Scott Bradlee on pianos, Danny Janklow on saxophone, Mike Cottone on trumpet, Alex Boneham and Brandon Brown on bass, among others. Singer Maiya Sykes also adds vocals to several tunes. A truly wonderful and visionary project.
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.
