(Up Creek Music)

Brian Booth and Kevin Stout transform their love of Utah’s wild places into outstanding music on their latest. Color Country marks their 4th recording together, with both musicians contributing the original compositions on the effort. Each of the tunes is dedicated to the southern region of their home states, where Stout and Booth have familial connections, as well as great reverence for the natural landscape. Booth plays saxophone and flute on the production, with Stout on trombone, guitar and percussion. The blend of their horns is fantastic, as are the contributions of the other players on the recording, which include Joey Singer on piano, Tom Warrington on bass, John Abraham on drums and Jobelle Yonley on vocals. Outstanding work by all involved. This is Utah jazz in the truest sense and it is outstanding.
