Thank you so much to Tristan Geary from Sound of Boston for writing a wonderful review of The New Groove! I am so appreciative of the time they took to read up on my music, background, and inspiration behind the project.
Here are a few of my favorite lines:
Spear’s alto playing is incredibly relaxed, melodies and improvised lines are delivered with poise and ease that makes them sound like overlapping conversation.
sounds like a pocket-sized Duke Ellington big band
This track is loaded with blues articulations but Spear never over-blows, and each line is sparkling, clear, virtuosic but also singable.
