Tom Chang, guitar, comp.; Quinsin Nachoff, tenor sax; Matt Aronofx, bass; Kenny
Contemporary jazz guitarist, Tom Chang leads a quintet featuring some of the finest improvisers in the New York jazz scene. The music will encompass modern jazz to contemporary classical all with a heavy emphasis on groove and melody. “What separates these tracks from other rock-leaning cuts made by jazz musicians today?
It feels authentic. And then the brief funk tune “Scatterbrain” emerges about halfway through the album, there’s chicken-scratch guitar and a simple yet heavy beat that screams The Meters. But later, things get eerie, as is someone was mixing funk with a New York jazz edge. That someone was Chang.” — Brad Faberman (Downbeat Mag.)
