New album from guitarist Kevin Brunkhorst is a musical journey
(Published: October 10, 2016)

Jazz guitarist Kevin Brunkhorst's new album Otherwise is impressively unified, like a well-written novel with no plot holes. The musical story is coherent and laid out beautifully. Brunkhorst takes listeners by the hand on a musical journey with scenic views and colorful hues.

Brunkhorst is totally in his element in "Roll Credits," a short but moving track. It may only be a minute and a half long but it's an impressive teaser for the entire album. His flawless acoustic guitar playing is accompanied by soothing saxophone. Give your soul a short retreat and keep this track on loop. They say first impressions last and this song will leave you with a great one, prompting you to listen to the entire album in a heartbeat.

Kicking off with pulsating drum solo and flawless electric guitar plucking, "Don't Explain" is subtle contemporary jazz. Halfway through the track, it shifts into an upbeat groove. Brunkhorst isn't afraid to explore different facets of jazz and this track showcases it. Chill but surprisingly invigorating, it will give you the right amount of boost you need to start your day without overwhelming your senses.

Relaxing from the get-go, "Upload" begins with a sweet saxophone melody and feathery percussion. It effortlessly rises to an energetic rhythm before slowing down again. Brunkhorst shows his superb skill with the strings, playing with tenderness and delight. Running for more than nine minutes, you won't even feel that it's long. It's like listening to a jazz instrumental mashup with three or four songs beautifully complementing each other. In this case, it's just one cut with a sundry of blissful jazz tunes.

Otherwise is like a ticket to a gorgeous tropical island. Listening to this album is like having a quick getaway, relaxing and revitalizing you. Brunkhorst created something really special here and listeners will experience it first hand as they immerse themselves into it, one track after another.
