Review Summary: "Beauty wrapped in a golden package"0 of 3 thought this review was well written
After, a two year wait from Evan Brewer stellar album 'Alone' we have "Your Itinerary".
There is much to say about this record. Unlike his previous album "Alone" he has brought more of a band experience to the record. Partnering with such names as Navene Koperweis (ex- Animals as Leaders) and Paul Allen such to name a few. There combined work brings us a experience which blows the minds of listeners to even higher place.
The elements on this album are varied and interesting. Varying from play styles such as jazz to blues and even some electronica. These styles are woven gently by the hands of masterminds proficient on their particular instruments. The additions are superb and bring dynamic feeling to each individual song on the album. There is so much experimentation that individuals who didn't enjoy this previous work 'Alone' will immediately enjoy this album.
Evan's bass work is excellent and more intrinsic to the flow of the album. His bass is essential as it brings complex melodies to the table. As a catalyst in this regard; leading his colleagues follow him upon this journey. On tracks such as "Microscopic Scale" and "Another World" shows you what this album is. A brilliant experimental ride across the passageway to your ear drums and ultimately to feelings of euphoria.
Overall, I did enjoy this record and the beauty it has presented me. My only negative is that with a masterful ride such as this record presents to the listener is it cut by it's very short run time.
