Zomo admirably celebrates the active participation in music of the moment...
Picking a single genre to place Jonathan Townes in would be difficult. Superficially, the music on Zomo could fall under the banner of contemporary mainstream jazz, though the outward leanings toward drum 'n bass, lounge electronica, smooth jazz, R&B and rock blur any concise descriptions. His style does certainly fit in nicely with many of the more popular jazz fusionists of the 1990s. Despite staying well within mainstream boundaries, Jonathan Townes avoids any clichés. Oriented toward the immediate, there is an unmistakable capacity for each song on Zomo to evoke a distinct sentiment. 'Ebb and Flow' is inquisitive but relaxed. 'Sing the Song' is a sturdy dance number with a loose, friendly feel. 'MCA' is swirling with anticipation. 'SFJ' and 'Fantaloma' are very much is the spirit of recent outings by guitarist Bill Frisell. Zomo admirably celebrates the active participation in music of the moment.
