Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Azar Lawrence & Al Mclean

Frontiers

I thought they kind of sound like Branford Marsalis. I love this kind of Jazz music, as it is just relaxing to listen to, and flows so smoothly from track to track. Some pretty long tracks or arrangements on this album, which could limit airtime play, but still an awesome album to pick up and add to the library. They do some pretty cool covers of songs by Thelonius Monk as well, like "Round Midnight" which is a decent version, and one of my favorites on the album. Also, not to shabby version of "Lonnie's Lament", originally written by John Coltrane.
