Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-05-04Composer, record producer, keyboardist Dave Siebels has been around, having composed for television, film, and having worked with the likes of BB King and Ray Charles. What's gotten him noticed, however, is his work on Pat Boone's "In a Metal Mood" release. (It was his concept and he produced it.) Gordon Goodwin heads a big band, and this band is tight. This is an album of B3-focused contemporary big band music. Most of these compositions are Dave Siebels'. The musicianship is admirable (Check out "The Cat" with Sal Lozano's cool flute solo.), but some of this comes awfully close to smooth-jazz. Rebecca Ruth
