Jordan Young -][- CYMBAL MELODIES – [Posi-Tone Records, 2012] –
Bells are ringing when drummer Jordan Young hits the set with his debut release for Posi-Tone, aptly entitled Cymbal Melodies. Indeed, Young succeeds in pushing his melodic message to the forefront with skillful leadership, while he ably demonstrates a total command of his own instrument. The session sings and soars from start to finish, featuring the B-3 wizardry and rhythmic genius of Brian Charette, the sensationally sizzling lines of guitarist Avi Rothbard, and Joe Sucato on sax for four tunes.
Critical listeners will certainly enjoy this flowing and thoughtful program of swinging selections and should agree that Cymbal Melodies announces that Jordan Young is an important and emerging new voice in jazz. -[Editorial Review | Amazon]-
