Andy Narell | Tatoom [Contemporary Jazz/Revisited]
Back in 1985, I was introduced to a record titled “Slow Motion,” by jazz show host Fred Story on WBCY in Charlotte, NC. Ironically, at the time I was a little apprehensive with what I heard. But, after listening to a few more tracks featured on the show, I fell absolutely in love with this album by a guy named Andy Narell who played a funny sounding instrument combined with an extremely funky jazz vibe on of all labels Windham Hill Records.
Now, some twenty-eight years later, the longevity of his music still resonates in my spirit. Last year, a friend dropped me and e-mail singing praises over Narell’s latest record “Tatoom.” With no hesitation and respectful of his opinion, along with a few clicks of the mouse Andy’s new record would soon arrive at my doorstep.
