Bill Barton has published a review from Wednesday’s Seattle Jazz Showcase featuring Thomas Marriott’s Willie Nelson Project and More Zero.
Night number three at The Seattle Jazz Showcase offered a resounding “yes, it’s really true” response to the oft-cited mention of diversity in Seattle’s jazz and improvised music community.
The Willie Nelson Project is a group that has a decidedly electronic palette. It’s not a state-of-the-art, spruced-up, sleek, smooth, digital computer age kind of electronics though. We’re talking dirty, low-down analog funk, boys and girls.
Stover’s “This is another dark, moody piece.” introduction led to the mesmerizing bass vamp and sonorous mallets on toms groove that was a little reminiscent of some of Eberhard Weber’s work filtered through a few years of drum ‘n’ bass and trance influences.
