Jared Gold – Golden Child

Jazz organist Jared Gold just released his CD Golden Child for Posi-Tone Records on March 27th, 2012. The energetic trio features Gold on organ, guitarist Ed Cherry and Quincy Davis on drums.

“Organist Jared Gold sets his standards high and arrives in style with his latest release "Golden Child." Serious listeners will be delighted to simply sit back and dig the music when Jared brings all the right stuff to this groovy and hard-hitting date. While the focus and crux of "Golden Child" rests squarely upon the shoulders of Mr. Gold and his B-3 organ, the strong showings of guitarist Ed Cherry and drummer Quincy Davis also provide their melodic highlights and consistently exhibit the kind of strong rhythmic support that always keeps the session in the pocket. With an exciting program of musical selections from a wide range of styles, from the funky and familiar to the soulful and original, "Golden Child" certainly exceeds expectations as a swinging collection of performances that jazz enthusiasts can bank on with confidence.” – Posi-Tone Records

Although this recording does not feature or even include a saxophone, I still feel it worthy of mention. Jared Gold’s previous offering on Posi-Tone featured saxophonist extraordinaire Ralph Bowen. You can read that review here. The absence of Bowen on Golden Child may be conspicuous to saxophone lovers however the trio of Gold, Cherry and Davis is absolutely complete within itself.
