Steve Knight - Persistence - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Persistence, from Steve Knight and it's a strong, guitar led instrumental release. Opening with Suspects,  inventive, Steve Knight on guitar sets the framework for a solid melody, backed by Justin Peterson on bass and Jeff Stitley on drums. With solid phrasing, unobtrusive bass and considerable high work by Stitley, this is a nice opener. Funky, Real Type Thing had a real nice bass line by Peterson and a tight rhythm by Stitley giving Knight a wide open roadway to jam. With some aggressive lead by Peterson and Knight, this is one of my favorites on the release. A cover of Tom Petty's Mary Jane's Last Dance, gets reworked pretty hard. With it's bopping rock rhythm and with a loose outline of the melody by Knight, Peterson take a cool bass solo. The melody having been stated and with Peterson and Stitley to hold the pace, Knight breaks loos with some improve of his own. Interesting workout.  In steady bop fashion, Workshop opens with a melodic framework and again opening a gateway for Peterson to lay out the first solo interlude, followed by Knight with a real nice stream of his own. This is a cool jam with plenty of flow. Wrapping the release is Sharps Disposal (Alternate Take) with a light jazz/rock feel. Knight really works it on this one with plenty of exchange with Stitley. Solid closer.
