Recording: Kind Mind

Artist: Kind Mind

Songs: [two selections]

Recorded at The Tranzac's Southern Cross Lounge (Josh Cole Presents), September 18, 2019.

Kind Mind - [excerpt from first piece]

Kind Mind - [second piece]

This short set from Josh Cole (double bass), Karen Ng (alto sax), and Michael Davidson (vibes) saw them opening for visiting musicians NAIL, so it was a bit of a stripped-back affair. Not working from their book of compositions this time, their pieces still had a strong sense of cohesion, especially the latter selection here, which sounds like a ballad-y standard you can't quite remember the title of, the nostalgia gleefully undermined by Davidson jabbing the stick-ends of his mallets into his instrument's spinning fans.

[Kind Mind will be back at The Tranzac on Wednesday, November 20th.]
