Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

NOAH BAERMAN, WAYNE ESCOFFERY, AMANDA MONACO, VINNIE SPERRAZZA, HENRY LUGO

Playdate

2010-03-05

This is the debut release from childhood friends, Noah Baerman, Wayne Escoffery, Amanda Monaco, Vinnie Sperrazza, and Henry Lugo. While I loved the playful tone of this cd package, the music inside was anything but. This is quiet, melodic jazz, fronted by hollow-bodied guitar, accompanied by piano and occasional saxophone, bass, and drums. Playdate starts out with the almost upbeat "Coppertone", and it gets quieter from there. Don't let the look of this cd fool you! This is music to snooze to. Rebecca Ruth
