Live at The Detroit Jazz Festival

A driving, energetic rendition of “Little Sunflower” kicks off the album with a note of hope. We are then reminded in the provocative and penetrating “Earth is Waiting” that hope alone is not enough to address climate change; action is required.

new albums on jazzweek chart Aimee Allen Love & the Catalyst

“Quantum Entanglements” is a grounded and soaring meditation on how we (like the referenced phenomenon of quantum physics) can remain connected and yet be flexible and free. The lush and faithful Chick Corea medley of “Crystal Silence / 500 Miles High” pays fitting tribute to the icon, shimmering with reverence. “Star Eyes” is delivered here as never heard before, in large part as a voice and drum duo with a playful wink and nod, and the band swelling in at the refrain.

“Love’s Crescendo” takes universal love seriously, in a soulful, sensuous groove. “Reaction Time” switches gears to a bold, hyper-dynamic drum and bass beat, accompanied by a suggestive lyric. “Mortally Immortal” revisits Mozart’s Requiem as a jazz-infused mass for those lost to Covid, with a lyric meeting our experience. “The Comet’s Tail” speaks to the fleeting and unpredictable nature of the exceptional. “Man Ripples Through Time” is a solemn protest and dirge that testifies to the extraordinary legacy of an ordinary man. “Hidden Place” is a compact, bluesy rage of comeuppance. “Worlds Collide” presents the age-old story of two becoming one as an ethereal, achingly beautiful affair of the cosmos.
