Feature CD of the Week

The Feature CD of the Week for this 3rd week of September is #LiveandUncut by Elan Trotman. I usually describe the contents of the feature in my own words, but this week the liner notes say it all.

Barbadian-born Jazz sax-man Elan Trotman presents The Elan Trotman Group and #LiveandUncut, a ten song collection of Caribbean Jazz-Fusion, which features saxophone and steel pans. The six member band was formed in Boston, and comprises all Berklee College of Music alumni.

The project pays tribute to Sonny Rollins and Chick Corea". Trotman says, "This album showcases some of my best songwriting to date, and my main goal was to capture all of the performances in a live setting - reminiscent of the classic jazz albums".

All that I can add is that I thoroughly enjoyed reviewing this great album. It is a subtle sound of "the islands" that is irresistible.
