Ed Goyer - Dichotomies

Jazz Action Society NSW February 2009  CD Review – Dichotomies, Ed Goyer

Six stunning tunes, vibes played with attitude, that’s what you get from Ed Goyer.  The two years he studied in Japan permeate this recording with sounds that melt into the contemporary jazz. 

What a diverse composer, the cruisy tune A Night in Tokyo Park where we get to hear him sing his solo versus the dramatic hard hitting ten minutes of Mr Moriwaki’s Outrageous Scheme with lots of exciting sections and some freaky tones out of the keyboard of Kelvin Haisman.

The title track Dichotomy starts slow only for a moment, then it gets lightening fast, building to an infectious groove built by Mark Costa on electric bass and Gordon Rytmeister on drums.

There’s a cute tune Rex the Cat that builds with lots of polished guitar from Sam Rollins; a slick tune Time Stories and a crazy jazz rock number 3 Sided Coin that took me back to the old Basement listening to Crossfire back in the day.  I am so pleased that we have another great young vibes player to continue the tradition.
