Live in Seattle

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Vibraphonist Joe Locke and keyboardist Geoff Keezer's third collaboration (their previous two CDs were released in Japan under the New Sound Quartet moniker) is their first live recording as a team. Joining them are bassist Mike Pope and drummer Terreon Gully (the latter who also took part in their earlier studio recordings) for a stimulating set recorded during the 2005 Ballard Jazz Festival. Locke's turbulent "Van Gogh by Numbers" serves as a sizzling, catchy opener, framed by an aggressive post-bop theme with a fusion midsection that gets into a bit of a Latin groove as Keezer switches to electric piano.

Vibraphonist Joe Locke and keyboardist Geoff Keezer's third collaboration (their previous two CDs were released in Japan under the New Sound Quartet moniker) is their first live recording as a team. Joining them are bassist Mike Pope and drummer Terreon Gully (the latter who also took part in their earlier studio recordings) for a stimulating set recorded during the 2005 Ballard Jazz Festival. Locke's turbulent "Van Gogh by Numbers" serves as a sizzling, catchy opener, framed by an aggressive post-bop theme with a fusion midsection that gets into a bit of a Latin groove as Keezer switches to electric piano. The pianist's "Fractured" is somewhat loping but loosens up while it progresses as its composer takes flight with a fine solo. Rocker James Taylor's ballad "Native Son" is successfully adapted as a jazz vehicle, though no credit is given for the arrangement. Locke's "The King (For T.M.)" is a wild finale, with an energy that never lets up. The incredible chemistry within this quartet is evident throughout the entire performance, so fans of either Locke or Keezer will want to pick up this rewarding CD.
