Drummer Jordan Young swings back on the set with a
wide array of styles and moods on his latest release for
Posi-Tone, aptly entitled "Jazz Jukebox." While presenting
a diverse variety of selections to delight, engage and
entertain listeners, Young consistently pushes his
melodic message to the forefront with skillful leadership
and ably displays a tasteful command of his own instrument.
The session sings and soars from start to
finish with the prodigious B-3 genius of Brian Charette,
the sensationally sizzling lines of guitarist Matt Chertkoff,
and there is also a special guest appearance by saxophonist
Nick Hempton, who lends his soulful sounds to
the mix for a few tunes. Listeners will certainly enjoy this
flowing and thoughtful program of straight forward musical
selections and should agree that "Jazz Jukebox"
solidly reinforces that Jordan Young is an insightful
tastemaker and an emerging new voice in jazz.
