SAXOPHONIST MARTY KRYSTALL RELEASES LIQUID KRYSTALL DISPLAYED ON HIS K2B2 RECORDS!
(Published: August 26, 2012)
Los Angeles native and multi instrumentalist, playing all of the saxes, clarinets, flutes , oboe and English horn however for this recording playing tenor, soprano and bass clarinet Marty Krystall will release his new CD Liquid Krystall Displayed on July 24th, 2012!
With a rich background in a variety of music from rock, R&B and classical and appearing on recordings of Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, Roy Orbison, Frank Zappa, Leo Kottke and Keith Moon, Little Jimmy Scott and Terrence Blanchard. All the diversity comes through in this dazzlingly brilliant CD!
Liquid Krystall Displayed easily shifts moods from the soul jazz sound evoked on the Grammy award winner Jerry Peters tune Round and Round. While Marty Krystall's own considerable compositional abilities are revealed with great effect on again the soulful title track Liquid Krystall Displayed.
Stretching his writing and playing Marty's Tenor Baddness does just that and he has a much harder edge to his robust sound. His third and final tune of the 10 ten set is Beybluhor with a lighting quick tempo to start then shifts down to almost a Monkish feel and finish!!
Speaking of Monk, Marty's version of the not often heard Skippy with Jerry Peters on organ, and the more familiar Introspection with Peters on piano here, are simply exquisite. With yet a different movement Marty's bass clarinet playing on Billy Strayhorn's Blood Count really displays all the colors of the instrument.
Marty is joined by superb musicians for this recording. Along with pianist and organist Jerry Peters is guitarist Calvin Keys who adds just the right mix of colors and feeling throughout all his solos. Peter Erkskine romps, rolls, and swings and maintains a very hip stage for all the things going on around him, from the vintage to the contemporary.
Long time friend and musical collaborator bassist Buell Neidlinger completely locks it all together where there is no escape! Marty and Buell have formed several groups including Thelonious from 1984-1990. Additionally Buell composed the last track on the CD, Billy's Blooze a very smokey and soulful blues.
Marty pays homage to another reed master with his arrangement of Benny Golson's Stablemates. It was Golson who later said of Marty Krystall's playing "you speak with a loud and clear voice"
The clear and distinct sound can be heard throughout Marty Krystall's new CD Liquid Krystall Displayed available July 24th, 2012.
