Terrific Jazz/Blues CD with acoustic instruments
The widely eclectic album “Euphony” by Randolph offers a vast variety of both songs and acoustic instrumentation. Most full band albums consist of the usual key instruments (drums, bass, guitar, and vocals) but Randolph has opened the door wide open on his newest collection of jazz/blues/world pop with use of djembe, cajon, congas, bongos, tablas, timpani, drum kit, violin, trombone, sax/flute, alto flue, bassoon, oboe, and numerous ethnic instruments. The result is magnificent and is well displayed on songs like “That Piece of Me” and “Analog Man.” The album is also filled with numerous lead vocal appearances, all of which are tastefully done and fit well within the song choice. There is also a great throwback to the singers of the ‘60’s on songs such as “Let’s Get Connected.” If you are into pop/jazz or anything Elvis Costello has put out in recent years, you will enjoy “Euphony.”
