CD Review: Jayme Stone's 'The Other Side Of The Air'

Jayme Stone
The Other Side Of The Air

Canadian banjoist, composer, and producer, Jayme Stone, brings us a fresh release of globetrotting instrumentals that fit a chamber orchestra with such passion, intensity, and experimentation. This represents not only a classical side, but also an African and American roots conglomeration. Imagine experimental jazz with world fusion and classical undertones directing the entire project. The sparkling banjo tones and blurting horns and vibrant strings keep everything moving along unapologetically. It may be world jazz, world music, world fusion, or neo-classical, but one thing is for sure: the music is top-notch. Anyone looking for plaintive and relaxing tunes that seem to incorporate different ethnic influences will love this jazzy, classical, and unique recording. ~ Matthew Forss
