Jim Richter explores "Metamorphosis" of musical genres on new album
(Published: August 29, 2017)

Metamorphosis is all about change. From Kafka to Richard Strauss, this concept has captured the spark of the imagination of many artists of all walks of life and all cultural backgrounds. Metamorphosis is actually not simple change, like moving to a different city: it's more like a process of growth through life, from cocoon to butterfly, from childhood to adulthood and many more.

Metamorphosis can be one of the most profound experiences in a lifetime, yet it happens so slowly that we seldom realize it is even happening at all. Jim Richter set out to explore this fascinating topic on his recent release by the same title. The style of the music really suits the creative concept, with a tantalizing and open-ended
combination of jazz, fusion, rock, and more.

On songs such as "Smoothie," the artist sets out to combine the aesthetics and production textures of various genres. The guitars are inspired by blues and rock tones, clean yet slightly crunchy. The drums are present and crisp with a well-defined sound. The piano creates a beautiful blanket of textures, allowing the song to breathe and expand as the arrangement moves on.

On another of my favorite tracks, "Macon," things get a unique twist, due to the interesting Latin shift of the beat, counteracting with a very upbeat country-pop twist. The lead guitars are completely rocking out, with a stunningly focused tone and some beautifully harmonized leads.

Metamorphosis is an accomplished album that showcases a lot of versatility and uncommon musical skills.
