ADAM GOLICKI ~ AD SHAVE
BCD 36 (Barcode: 5906881885369) ~ POLAND ~ Jazz-Rock Fusion

Recorded: 2015 Released: 2015

This is the debut album by young Polish Jazz drummer / composer Adam GolickiFind albums by this artist, recorded with a core trio, which also includes keyboardist Michal CiesielskiFind albums by this artist and bassist Piotr GierszewskiFind albums by this artist. This same trio released an album under the Confusion ProjectFind albums by this artist moniker a year ago. Eight guest musicians appear on selected tracks, among them saxophonist Maciej SikalaFind albums by this artist. The album presents six original compositions, all composed by Golicki (although the album´s packaging includes also a conflicting line claiming the compositions were co-composed by Golicki and Ciesielski).

The music is a nice collection of melodic tunes performed excellently by all the musicians involved in a Funky / Fusion mainstream style. This music swings and the musicians are all professionals, so nothing negative can be said about this album, except for the fact that it is derivative and introduces absolutely no innovation as far as music is concerned. On the other hand not every album innovates (in fact only very few do) so this album is at least as good as most other albums released in the same musical milieu and parts of it are even brilliant.

I had an entertaining time listening to this music, not trying to analyze it any more than need be and having a good time in the process. Perhaps not music for brainiacs, but this is a solid piece of music in every respect and very many people who like the lighter side of Jazz should have a great time listening to it. Hopefully Golicki will continue his musical path further and will grace us with more ambitious projects in the future. His potential as a composer certainly ignites high hopes.
