Isaac Jaffe – Telenova Vol. 1
Well, since we’re talking about Indie-Jazz fusion, we might as well mention bass playerIssac Jaffe’s new album. Telenova really strays far away from Jazz’s center, though as this particular vein of jazz-indie fusion is becoming more commonplace, the “center” of jazz is becoming an increasingly fuzzy measurement. A quintet of trumpet, tenor sax, guitar, bass, and drums, the album keeps a rapid pace throughout, and even when Jaffe gets the group to lay back on the tempo, you can tell it’s just a matter of time before they get the heart rate up again.
Your album personnel: Jackie Coleman (trumpet), Nicholas Myers(tenor sax), Kirk Schoenherr (guitar), Sam Levin (drums), and Isaac Jaffe (bass)
Jaffe describes his sound as post-hardcore Jazz, and explains, “Post-Hardcore Jazz mixes exciting rhythm, harmony, and immediately engaging melodies to create an entirely new sound drawn out of a diverse array of American music.”
Jaffe has a strong voice on bass, and this Indie-Jazz sound is becoming a stronger voice on the modern jazz scene. If I were to generalize the interests of a typical rabid music fan in search of cool new sounds, I’d have to say this album would be right up the alley of many. Easy to like this album.
This album is Self-Produced. Jazz from the Brooklyn scene.
