Terrace Martin & Curly – the album “Curly” – Jazzy hour, the 14th of November 2023
When we want a refresh through current rhythms and tones, the solution is Terrace Martin, who is versatile and very productive, at least in 2023, when he released six albums. One of them, "Curly", honours both the jazz's timeless legacy and the pieces which show his father's artistic spirit. That's why music has emotional intensity and reflects a continuous adventure. With each note and rhythmic measure, Terrace Martin walks us through experiences that resonate with each and every one of us. His pieces show his dimension and keep us connected to the present. The saxophonist Kamasi Washington, the keyboard players Cory Henry and Larry Goldings, the drummer Robert SputSearight and the guitarist Nir Felder are also part of this brilliant production, a true festival of virtuousness, with musicians who celebrate jazz while also broadening its horizon. "Curly" is a courageous album, that offers us the priceless opportunity of an unforgettable listening.
