Cannonball Jazz, 2014, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: R&B+Jazz
O’s Notes: Chris “Doc” Stewart is described on his website as: Jazz Saxophone Artist, Physician, Surfer, Carpenter, Cannonball Adderley Historian and Collector. He’s all of that and an overachiever at most of it. Code Blue! is slamming with electrifying brass and reed sections in a crisp large ensemble. Stewart leads an energetic set that has all the right sauce and lots of soul on songs like “Last Breath Blues/All Alone Now”. Doc plays a super sax solo toward the end of “Code Jesus/New Life!” We enjoyed the funky groove of “Snakin’ The Grass” in a solid collection of contemporary jazz.
