The TNEK Jazz Quintet Plays the Music of Sam Jones

The TNEK Jazz Quintet Plays the Music of Sam Jones

released 2020

The TNEK Jazz Quintet concentrates on the work of Sam Jones when he was with Cannonball’s aggregation. It was bass player, Kent Miller who came up with the idea of recording an album of the music of Sam Jones. This super talented ensemble of musicians brings fire and spontaneity to the music. Pianist, Darius Scott, is soulful and prolific on his instrument. Greg Holloway is the dynamic drummer and Antonio Parker and Benny Russell add the intricate horn lines that Sam Jones wrote.”

Kent Miller is known for his laidback double bass playing, consisting of less splash and more dependability than, say, Charles Mingus, the band-leading bass player most folks will conjure up for comparison. Miller's band largely fits in the groove of 60s jazz and seems very comfortable there, inviting natural comparisons to any of the jazz groups that bassists Ron Carter and Paul Chambers were in over the years.

What you hear immediately from bassist Kent Miller's quartet is their fluency and propulsive, surely satisfying, button poppin' finger-snappin' swing with both originals and standards that holds up extremely well with repeated listenings.

Whether it's the calypso infused feel good swing and celebratory atmosphere of West End Carnival, the fantastic piano, bass and sax solos in the catchy Miss Lillie or the lovingly sentimental ballad "Per'igree" you cannot go wrong with any of these tracks. The uplifting "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy…Percy" features more outstanding bass and sax.
