The first and most important comment I can make about this album is that this record is for music lovers, not necessarily just jazz lovers. yeah No is the quartet of multi-talented NY musicians led by the never-ceasing clarinetist/saxophonist Chris Speed. The band creates extremely focused and smooth jazz compositions that please the ears of even the most close-minded person. The most amazing aspect of the album is that it sounds both improved and rehearsed at the same time. On the same note, it could be considered avant-garde that concentrates on using melody as the centerpiece; meaning that it is a great stepping stone for a amateur jazz fan to understand the elegance behind avant-garde and improv. Swell Henry also features Rob Burger, whose accordion is an amazing compliment to the sound, and Jamie Saft on mellotron and farfisa. This is a very good record that you should enjoy, jazz fan or not. Mpardaiolo
