Guitarist Ryan Meagher unpeels jazz's cutting edge on new album
(Published: March 10, 2017)

The unyielding, infectious energy guitarist/electric pianist Ryan Meagher and his band gives off on Mist. Moss. Home. suggests, at times, the youthful exuberance of alternative rock. It's not something one would expect from a jazz album but that's a large part why Mist. Moss. Home. invigorates the most jaded ears. Supported by saxophonist Tim Willcox, bassist Chris Higgins, drummer Charlie Doggett, and electric pianist Ben Turner, Meagher blends his varied influences with startling, intoxicating results.

On "First Place," Meagher offers nearly every member of his group sufficient time in the spotlight, producing compelling moments. When Willcox' tuneful sax picks up momentum, so does Meagher's crisp guitar playing reach exhilarating heights. The deep throb of Higgins' bass strengthens the rhythmic foundation of the track. The musicians unpeel layers of sonic beauty.

"Banter" is a boisterous homage to Hall of Fame baseball icon Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs. Meagher's rambunctious performance complements Doggett's swift drumming. Is it a home run? More like a grand slam as the bases are certainly loaded when Meagher knocks it out of the park.

Meagher's experimental edge keeps Mist. Moss. Home. consistently intriguing. "Vasona" opens up slow and moody, and there is a mysterious darkness to it not often heard in contemporary jazz.
