Jordan Young - Jazz Jukebox (2016) POSI-TONE RECORDS



Drummer Jordan Young swings back on the set with a wide array of styles and moods on his latest release for Posi-Tone, aptly entitled "Jazz Jukebox." While presenting a diverse variety of selections to delight, engage and entertain listeners, Young consistently pushes his melodic message to the forefront with skillful leadership and ably displays a tasteful command of his own instrument. The session sings and soars from start to finish with the prodigious B-3 genius of Brian Charette, the sensationally sizzling lines of guitarist Matt Chertkoff, and there is also a special guest appearance by saxophonist Nick Hempton, who lends his soulful sounds to the mix for a few tunes. Listeners will certainly enjoy this flowing and thoughtful program of straight forward musical selections and should agree that "Jazz Jukebox" solidly reinforces that Jordan Young is an insightful tastemaker and an emerging new voice in jazz.
