Half Notes: Chris Green Quartet – Merge (2009)

Share this:

by Mark Saleski

I do like my jazz with some funk, and Chris Green delivers. The opening track “Good Riddance!” cooks right along as does “Coffee ‘n Scotch,” built on a simple ostinato that gets moved around in sly ways as the funk slips into and back out of straight swing. The album hits a couple of delicious peaks during incendiary covers of “Let’s Get It Started” (Black Eyed Peas) and Madonna’s “Borderline.” Too much fun.
