|After exploding the conventions of jazz guitar with his two previous trio albums (Takin' the Duke Out and Goin' Out Again), New York-based guitarist Dom Minasi has taken a kinder and gentler route with his brilliant new CD Time Will Tell. But the spirit of adventure and innovation is not diminished even an iota on this dynamic excursion by Dom's ensemble, DDT + 2.
With the all-string core group of Dom on guitar, cellist Tomas Ulrich and bassist Ken Filiano augmented by John Bollinger on drums and vocalist Carol Mennie (appearing only on a haunting rendition of Thelonious Monk's Round Midnight), Time Will Tell offers a different, but no less provocative side of the amazing guitarist's expansive musical vision.
Download his outstanding original, DMP for a taste of this incredible CD. Based on Miles Davis'; classic All Blues (which is also a highlight of his Goin' Out Again CD), and featuring deliciously lyrical solos by all, DMP is just one of the many delights of Minasi's release on CDM Records.
