Red Jazz, 2006, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Kool
O’s Notes: Red Jazz picked a winner in drummer Evan Stone to launch their debut recording. Evan is all about a new rejuvenated left coast sound. His lineup is strong including Matt Otto (sax) who shines on “For My Friends”, Joe Bagg (B3) and Josh Nelson (p). Sara Gazarek adds a vocal track on “Moonlight In Vermont” to balance out the mostly bebop set. But they really swing in a cool jazz way. “East of the Sun” is a great example.
