Gold Sounds (2005)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Sep 27, 2005; Lead Performances: Cyrus Chestnut and James Carter; Genre: Jazz

Gold Sounds expands the jazz canon beyond Tin Pan Alley standards to...Pavement. It turns out the legendary indie band's fractured slacker rock makes for some surprisingly good instrumental cover material. Led by the renowned James Carter's fearless saxophone blowing, this quartet of veteran players uncovers an unexpected soulful tinge beneath Pavement's fuzzed-out absurdities, turning their ''Summer Babe'' into a gospel-jazz vamp and ''Trigger Cut'' into an appealingly bouncy bebop piano piece.
