MicroCorgi, 2020, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: MicroCorgi is an international, funky, electric, fusion trio featuring keyboardist Andrew McGowan (New Orleans), drummer Ilya Dynov (Moscow) and guitarist Yuto Kanazawa (Tokyo). They are based in New York where they launched their debut Microcosmos. The session has a good variety of contemporary jazz-fusion music, including soft vocals on “Another Day”, but mostly crisp instrumentals like “Tuff Pretty Lady”, “Avocados Every Day”, the funky title track and the mellow “Utopia” featuring Kanazawa. It is a compelling offering.
