Anton Schwartz – Flash MobJanuary 28, 2014 / No Comments / Tags: Anton Jazz, anton schwartz, Dominick Farinacci, Flash Mob, John Shifflett, Lorca Hart, taylor eigsti, thejazzpage.com
Tenor saxophonist and composer Anton Schwartz brings a diverse collection of moods and tunes to his new recording. FlashMob is Schwartz’s first recording in seven years. The tunes are fresh and definitely augment the West Coast-based musician’s big, bright sound on the horn. Schwartz wrote all but two of the album’s tracks, giving way to works of Thelonious Monk and Kenny Durham for two numbers. Adding magic to the music is a line of considerable talents, including Dominick Farinacci on trumpet and flugelhorn, Taylor Eigsti on piano, John Shifflett on bass and Lorca Hart on drums. The quartet sounds as polished as a unit as they are individually gifted and the result is a fantastic work.
