The Adam Price Group blurs genre boundaries on 'House Ghosts'
(Published: November 24, 2020)

While 2020 is kind of a forgettable year for the music world in general, 2018 was an exciting time for many artists, especially The Adam Price Group. In fact, this was the year that marked the release of his excellent studio work, House Ghosts. The album features nine songs, blurring the lines between traditional jazz elements and world fusion.

When it comes to this type of music, I am a sucker for organic performances captured honestly with as little studio meddling as possible. This is most definitely what is happening here. The songs on the record have a very natural coloration to them, highlighting the musical gifts of this talented musicians. The line-up features Adam Price himself, a world-class clarinet player. Other members include Isamu McGregor (keys) as well as Jack Synosky (bass), Spencer Inch (drums), Jeff Hatcher (Percussion), Kristina Rajgeij (vocals) and Jon Bell (cowbell, autoharp).

The first song on the album, "Mzungu," is a stunning jazz number with some tasty Afro-Beat influences. The sound blurs the lines between the familiar and the innovative, almost like adding a tangy hot sauce to your favorite comfort meal. Other highlights on this release include the title track itself. The tune features an atmospheric introduction reminiscent of musique concrète and free jazz alike. However, the song quickly evolves in a mellow, candle-lit arrangement, tastefully performed and beautifully produced. The dynamics on this cut are incredible, and the vocals provide a beautiful edge to the track. "Chameleon Colored Eyes" is a catchy single. The song dives into soft jazz and fusion, while retaining a pop appeal. The vocals are at the forefront, and the musicianship is truly impeccable. I love how the percussion and drums gel together so seamlessly, and everything fits together so well like the pieces of an intricate puzzle forming a stunning picture, the kind that you'd want to hang proudly on your living room walls.

All in all, this is a stunning record, showcasing an incredible production quality, and some of the best in terms of musicianship and creative vision.
