Matt Panayides - Tapestries Of Song (CD)
Release Date: 01/11/11
Exploratory guitarist/composer Matt Panayides introduces a visionary new artist with a distinctive approach to music.
Sharing the front line, veteran saxophonist Rich Perry proves himself to be the perfect foil for the leader's guitar and a masterful interpreter of his multifaceted compositions. Bassist Steve LaSpina, who has provided the musical backbone on countless recordings including many under his own name, once again rises to the occasion, not only laying down a solid foundation, but also adding lyrical nuances to the leader's melodic lines. Young Dan Weiss is a modern day rhythmic force, a master of exotic meters and out of the ordinary time signatures, who plays Panayides' compound rhythms unforcedly, contributing immeasurably to the music's natural flow. The compositions on Tapestries of Song - each one written by Panayides and different in nature - reflect his myriad life experiences. 'Seoul Soul' is a swinging uptempo outing that breaks up the conventional 12 bar phrase, as well as one of jazz's more common chord progressions in different ways.
