Jazz Wax writes up Jordan Young…

leave a comment


One of the best organ trio albums I’ve heard in a while is by drummer Jordan Young’s Cymbal Melodies (Posi-Tone). Too many albums of this sort are overly moody or too candy pop. This one is just right—upbeat, groovy and melodic. And there are superb tracks here: By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head, Lee Morgan’sFree Wheelin’ and Grant Green’sGrantstand as well as originals and other standards. Backing Young are Brian Charette on organ, Avi Rothbard on guitar and Joe Sucato on saxophone. Shades of the Mighty Burner, organist Charles Earland.
