Carl Orr: Blue Thing  
 

"Blue Thing" is the darker, more serious cousin of 1993’s Mean It. There is less emphasis on funk and more on intricate compositions. However, the incredible musicians (Mike Bukovsky, Dale Barlow, Andrew Gander, Adam Armstrong, Fabian Hevia, Kristen Cornwell) tear it up and deliver unbelievable performances of passion and real class. Lovingly recorded, like Mean It, by the sorely missed Neal Sandbach at the ABC’s Ultimo Studios with the assistance of Jim McLeod, the production is first class. “Carl Orr has here produced an album of stylish, carefully wrought fusion with very hip harmony and timbres.The mood is cool and bluesy rather than fraught or frenetic. These are all substantial, satisfying charts but outstanding amongst them is JFP, notable for its powerful melody and thematic ingenuity.” Mark Gilbert, Jazz Journal International(UK). “Blue Thing is the name of Carl Orr’s new cd, but Rainbow Thing might be more appropriate, for Carl’s playing style and compositional ability are not limited to a single colour. There are too many dimensions and resonances to his skills for him to be so restricted.” Craig N. Pearce, Drum Media, Sydney. “Carl Orr’s love of syncopated horn and guitar unison lines and muted Beckian articulation - dig those expressive down bends - is supported by brainy post-fusion melodies and tight hopscotch jazz-funk grooves that recall Miles Davis’ comeback.” Guitar Player magazine (USA)
