Frank Kimbrough/Joe Locke: THE WILLOW Review of Frank Kimbrough/Joe Locke: The Willow (OmniTone 12201)

All Music Guide · Citizen Jazz (France) · Downtown Music Gallery (NY) · JazzTimes
  • "...perceptive interplay and majestically enacted arrangements ... a myriad of atmospheric passages featuring implied rhythms and multicolored pastiches of sound ... a remarkable duo ... extraordinary synergy.... Here, the music tells a story that emanates from the heart, as though the artists were overcome with some inexplicable spiritual aura.  Simply stated, Kimbrough and Locke have produced a luminous gem that should easily rank among the top two or three releases of 2002, or any year for that matter."

  • "...graceful melody with unexpected changes.  It sounds at times they've dispensed with bar lines, but actually they are so together."
  • "...lovely, melancholy melody, dreamy and touching ... folky melody and rich harmonies for the entire quartet to shine with.  This entire release is quite beautiful and enchanting throughout..."  [Read review]

  • "...les compositions continuent á flatter l'oreille, et cet univers de beauté sans excès de joliesse semble toujours bien apaisant, surtout par les temps qui courent."
