Jazz CD of the Month: Shelley Yoelin's Jazz Workshop Septet / Seven Steps / Blujazz Productions
A new release by a Chicago-based outfit headed by tenor saxophonist
Shelly Yoelin is an intoxicating mix of straight ahead bop, ballads and Latin
sounds. Five of the seven members provide material.The highlights include
Diddley Dance, the Bo Diddley beat would be right at home in New Orleans.
Beautiful Sweetheart, composed by pianist Bobby Schiff is a lovely ballad
dedicated to his wife Natasha. Eastern Fun incorporates Klezmer music into
the mix. One of the highlights of the year so far.
