Justin Hellman, 2007, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Justin (b) leads a quartet with John Arkin (d), Eric Vogler (g) and Roshywn Bullock (sax). They play ten originals that have a fresh, funky, fusion sound. Hellman takes center stage on “Ironical” with a strong solo following Bullock’s melody. They dabble on the funky side with “Groobalooing” and hold that groove for the rest of the set. Our favorites are “Mindfudge” and the finale, “Interesting Apples”.
