AAJ Review #2: Michael Musillami’s From Seeds

One day after his colleague Troy Collins weighed in on the Michael Musillami Trio + 3’s debut, From Seeds (Playscape Recordings), AllAboutJazz.com contributor Nic Jones has his say in a review posted today.

“Guitarist Michael Musillami’s trio, with bassist Joe Fonda and drummer George Schuller, is some seven years old and thus a thing of great musical closeness,” Jones writes, ” but in this case a doubling in the size of the band results only in musical pleasures.”

He adds, “That result is aided in no small part by the distinctiveness of Musillami’s compositions, which are brought to life by a band with a deep knowledge of his methodology and what it takes to make an impression. They unselfconsciously avoid every cliché in the book, and repeated listening is passed with aplomb.”
