Percussionist Joe Porter and pianist Joel Goodfellow present a unique take on some well-known compositions in their recording debut. Detours showcases Porter and Goodfellow’s renditions of classic themes from film, literature and jazz. Acoustically, the production has a live in-the-moment feel that sounds completely improvisational and compelling. Porter moves between vibraphone and other percussive instruments and the interplay between the two players gives the effort a sound that is intimate and encompassing alternately. The project features the music of Ennio Morricone, Howard Shore, Paul Desmond and Sean Beeson. The latter composer’s work is performed live before an audience. Be sure to check out this engaging adventure in musical artistry.
