Nowlin, Matt

Good News!
Sealed 2010 Private Pressing. Limited Edition Of 250 Copies. “In A World Full Of Negative Media, The Matt Nowlin Jazz Orchestra Only Wants To Talk About The Good News!. The Good News Is That Chicago- Based Composer/Conductor Nowlin Does Not Hesitate When Referencing The Great Big Bands Of The Past; However, This Attitude Does Not Keep Him Or His Soloists From Exploring New Territory As Well. While Some Tracks Feature Stride Piano Introductions À La Early Count Basie Or Saxophone Ensemble Playing Much Like The Glenn Miller Orchestra, Nowlin Makes Sure To Add His Creative Voice Throughout. This Comes To Fruition On "The Deeper You Go," Where Nowlin Offers A Variety Of Interpretations Of Rhythm Within The Same Swing Feel. He Takes This Rhythmic Complexity Further As He Explores Different Drum Grooves On "Three Up, Three Down," And At Several Points During This Track, The Main Drum Groove Is Being Played On The Rim Of The Snare Drum, Providing A Feel Reminiscent Of The Very Early Stages Of Jazz. Because Much Of This Album Features Simpler Harmonies, The Spots Of Harmonic Adventure Serve As A Welcome Surprise. These Moments Appear On The Final Piano Chord Of "R And B," And Also On The Title Track, During The Sendoff Into The Tenor Saxophone Solo. “ – Alex Marianyi, AllAboutJazz
