O’s Notes: Bay area based (San Francisco) keyboardist, composer Michael Echaniz presents his debut recording Seven Shades of Violet, a contemporary, progressive jazz release focused on his journey thus far. Vocalist Danielle Wertz, bassist & producer Jeff Denson, and drummer Dillon Vado round out the core band. French and English spoken word, backed by choral echoes resonate on “Clockwork”. We also enjoyed “Everything Is Embarrassing” featuring Dann Zinn on tenor sax.
