One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Musicstand Records artist: Anthony E. Nelson Jr. - Swinging Sunset - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Swinging Sunset, by Anthony E. Nelson Jr. and I really like it. Opening with Eddie Haywood's, Canadian Sunset, tenor sax player Anthony E. Nelson, Jr. is bopping. With Kyle Koehler on B3 and Cecil Brooks III on drums, this track is humming. Nelson has a rich tone and fluid, soulful lines and the full B3 backing lets his horn sail. Excellent opener. Latin rhythm sets the stage for Uno Mas Por Roberto, written for Nelson's uncle Bob who is fluent in Spanish. On Stanley Turrentine's, Minor Chant, Nelson sets the melody before breaking into a lively exploration of on sax and Koehler follows Jimmy Smith's lead with a great solo of his own. Very cool. On Johnny Griffin's, Mildew, Nelson really get things going with rapid fire riffs. Jamming. Spinning up one of Sonny Rollin's favorites, Three Little Words, Nelson is really driving, showing a real feel for the style. This is great! Wrapping the release is original track, Last Call (For Gryce) written in honor of Tommy Gryce. With it's bluesy underpinnings, this track gives Nelson a super opportunity to get down and squeeze the notes from his sax. This really is a strong closer for a really cool release.
