USA: Posi-Tone Records Album Releases from Jon Davis & Ken Fowser

2016 begins with two outstanding album releases!

Jon Davis Trio and Ken Fowser Quintet start the year off strong.

Jon Davis "Changes Over Time"

 

Pianist Jon Davis explores and expounds to philosophically approach the music encapsulated in his new album "Changes Over Time."  The ensuing result is a strong piano trio date that features bassist Ugonna Okegwo and drummer Jochen Rueckert.  Davis masterfully employs a full palette of harmonic landscapes, melodic motifs, and swampy grooves to make emotionally engaging statements that are also elegantly lyrical and clearly suggestive of a modern jazz sensibility.  With some brilliant performances and an evocative program of music, including several new original compositions, Jon Davis’ ”Changes Over Time" is sure to bring bright moments of intense delight to listeners everywhere.

Ken Fowser "Standing Tall"

 
Talented tenor man Ken Fowser rises to the occasion and steps into the spotlight with steadfast earnestness on his latest release "Standing Tall."  Prepare to be delighted, as Fowser unveils an exciting musical program of brilliant original compositions presented by his working group of pianist Rick Germanson, bassist Paul Gill, Jason Tiemann on drums and Josh Bruneau on trumpet.  Throughout the new record, Fowser continues to announce his commanding presence as a first-rate soloist, but more importantly, he ably demonstrates a strong and well refined artistic vision for his own music as a leader that is both emotionally engaging, uplifting, and entertaining.  With a delicate balance of modernity and classic aesthetics, "Standing Tall" is insightfully straight forward, steadily swinging, and refreshingly melodic.
