Mark Allaway, PRS(100.00%)
New Composer Mark Allaway brings delightful, tranquil melodies to Classic Jazz Vol 3. Featuring astute ragtimey guitar and sweet clarinet leads, one half solo and the other backed by a gentle bass and drum, this collection really shines! Check out "Blues For Bilbo"- the clarinet and guitar follow the melody together winding together on a charming, subtle melody framed perfectly by the easy rhythm section. Alone, together on the lilting, "On Our Way" they stroll cheerfully through a happy, laid-back melody. The subtle hints of ragtime on "Ragtime Andy"and the gypsy guitars flavor the sweet jumping melody, but the band is calmly, gently wailing. This is a really excellent set and the production is is lovingly done, Classic Jazz Vol 3 will really set the mood.
