Improvijazzation Nation: "Northern Light" Review

Improvijazzation Nation Logo

Scott Healy – Glenn Alexander Quartet – NORTHERN LIGHT:  As you listen to Scott’s piano/synth work against the fantastic guitar from Glenn (joined by bass from Kermit Driscoll and drums from Jeff Hirshfield), you will be pleased beyond measure if well-played jazz.  That’s especially evident on tracks like the beautiful “Christmas Day“, a 6:41 gem that you won’t soon forget!  What makes this even more amazing is that these were from “closet tapes” – over 20 years ago – now, how cool is that (I know that I’ve discovered a few of those from my old recording days, too… & it is truly a pleasant discovery for any artist).  My p

ersonal favorite, though, was the 4:56 “To The Point“… each player draws the best out of the others – sonically, I’m reminded of some of the best work David Friesen did back in the day when I listen to these 6 songs.  I give Scott, Glenn & their compadres from two decades ago a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED on this one, as well as an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99.  Get more information at Glenn’s page for this CD.       Rotcod Zzaj
