CD Review: The Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band Want To "Come Over"
The album begins with the gentle flow of "Waterfalls." The song has a familiar folk sound with Patty's vocals gentle carrying the song. The band takes a "u-turn" on the album's next song with the experimental ranting of "Come Over." The rest of the album just falls into place with the reggae sounds of "Love Bound" and "Hunker Down." The Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band show off their funky-side with "Mixed Message", but it the smoothness of Patty' voice in "Solace" and "Nancy" where the album shines bright.
The album was released this past summer on Hand Made Recordings and is available through the band's website dfjbmusic.com along with their other albums. Patty Carpenter and the Dysfunctional Family Jazz Band will be performing at the MetroTech Tree Lighting on November 30 and at Adagio's in Brattleboro, VT on December 10.
