LMB Music, 2016, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Pop+Jazz
O’s Notes: This is a CD of calming music that we found quite enjoyable during our morning walk. Guitarist Lawrence Blatt resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and has been delighting fans there with peaceful contemporary jazz for some time. There are several selections on Longitudes & Latitudes with Latin flavors as Blatt is inspired by his travels around the world as detailed in the liner notes. He accentuates his performance with strong contributions from saxophonist Premik Russell Tubbs, pianist Kori Linae Carothers and violinists Charlie Bisharat and Lila Sklar. Blatt’s work on acoustic guitar makes it a very refreshing set.
