CD Reviews

The best of "The Crescent City" come through again!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Astral project is a "super group" of New Orleans jazz. The members blend and flow through the genre of modern jazz in an unique style which combines elements of the various jazz forms, rock, second line, funk, classical, romance, punk, name it, and it is there. They are the only Astral Project, none other even comes close. Elevado reflects the maturity of their 20+ years together. These guys are connected by invisible threads of experience. No seams are visible in the motion of their collective journey. Five individuals become one, and the synergy is obvious. Buy it now!"
Great modern cutting edge jazz
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While the tourists hang around Bourbon Street for "free" ragtime at $4.50 a glass, the locals have been listening to these guys for years. This is one of many releases, their latest, and it's great. It's not dixie or swing, but modern jazz at its best. If you can handle that, you gonna love it!"
Good Jazz with some outstanding talent at several positions

"Bull dog run and carnival are my favorites. I saw this group live at Snug in NO. James Singleton on basss was one of the most memeorable parts of the evening. His flari for showmanship and his Buddy Holly looks on Bull dog kicked for sure. The greatest talent of this band lies intheir dummer Johnny V. This man has a talent for rythums that place him amongst the best drummers extant. Their guitarist STeve M is a composer extrod., and the sax and piano (Tony and David) are incredibly talented, rounding out a major jazz force."
