Terrific set of Jazz music with Progressive/Psychedelic flair
Equal parts jazz and instrumental psychedelic / progressive rock, Reform’s debut CD, “Reformed,” charts a middle ground that ably fuses classic styles and influences - with an unusual twist. With a stellar 6-piece ensemble behind him, harmonica player Àlvaro Fernandez Gavíria’s full, lower-octave playing serves as a primary lead instrument for much of the album. With studied restraint, Gaviria’s tone – which recalls that of accomplished blues harp-stylist, Corky Siegel, approaches his instrument like a fusion-oriented Miles Davis, drawing out found harmonics within the framework of the band’s rich and melodic songscapes.
Guitarists Johan Glasson and Peter Åkerberg create the underpinning for Reform’s – at times, Steely Dan-like jazz-rock sound, while drummers Anders Bergman and Åke Eriksson provide the forward thrust, effectively filling passages with deft and meticulous hits and textures. Not to go unmentioned, bassist Jesper Bergman and keyboard player, Magnus Ramel’s contributions are no less vital - and noteworthy, to Reform’s decidedly adventurous leanings. Regardless of whether it’s fusion jazz or spacey art rock, Reform’s CD is a terrific set of original music by unique players with unbounded skills.
