WCS 105 Your Sound: Live at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola
Jay Rodriguez

If it’s the “coolest” in saxophone sounds your ears are thirsting for – Jay’s your ticket to Nirvana… many of his performances on this superb release remind me of players in the “glory days” of jazz… Yusef Lateef, Rhasaan Roland Kirk & folks like that, ya’ know… believe your EARS, not me… listen to the lilting jazz flute work on “Ghost Dancer“, and you’ll hear what I mean… excellent performance, & the fact that it was recorded live only adds to the abundance of spirit you’ll groove on. There is over an hour of great music on this CD, but it was easy to pick my personal favorite of the ten performances offered up for your jazz edification… “Spirits” features Jay talking about ghosts in his house as an intro, then jumps right on INTO a high-energy 6:53 piece with total focus and sax with meat on it’s bones. I give Jay and his players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this FINE album. Get more information about this brilliant jazz fellow on Jay’s about page.
