Once again, the gates to our contemporary/smooth jazz community are opened to a new and exciting artist, keyboardist Scott Allman, who has released his sparkling debut album, Generations, as proof positive of his qualifications to be among our promising up-and-coming artists who truly come bearing gifts.
With saxman Darren Rahn lending his skills throughout the project, there is plenty of moving and shaking and swagger going on which blends well with all of the groove-filled hooks and melodies.
Not only does Allman demonstrate playing skill but, having written and produced all of the material, he shows a clear grasp of the mechanics of the contemporary jazz vibe, and he knows and obviously feels what’s at the very core of good, solid music
