UNIVERSAL 602537537594 (Barcode: 602537537594) ~ USA ~ Pop & Rock

Recorded: 2012 Released: 2013

Although released under the name of American Jazz trumpeter Michael Patches StewartFind albums by this artist, this is in fact a product of cooperation between American and Polish Jazz musicians. The Americans also include saxophonist Kenny GarrettFind albums by this artist, keyboardist George DukeFind albums by this artist (on one track only), drummer Poogie BellFind albums by this artist and a few others. The Poles are represented by bassist / keyboardist Robert KubiszynFind albums by this artist, guitarist Marek NapiorkowskiFind albums by this artist, keyboardist Pawel TomaszewskiFind albums by this artist and others. The album comprises of eight tracks, four of which were composed by Kubiszyn and the remaining four by American composers. One track includes vocals.

The music has almost nothing to do with Jazz and is a kind of instrumental Soul / Funk with only marginal Jazzy touches. The melodies are completely banal and unremarkable and the improvisations shallow. The performances are well executed, which is not surprising considering the level of the musicians involved and their professionalism. However the overall result is pretty miserable, screaming "muzak" and "elevator music" from start to finish. Why such talented musicians would stoop so low is completely beyond me and I hope they´d all rather forget this disaster ASAP.

What a waste of talent!
