The Magnetic Ear
February 14, 2008
BY JASON SONGE
The Magnetic Ear plays beautiful modern jazz. They are saxophonist Martin Krusche, baritone and bass saxophonist Dan Oestricher, trombonist Jeff Albert, drummer Justin Peake, and tuba player John Gros.
The music was always thematic and sometimes epic, sometimes soothing, sometimes aggressive and rockin'. I enjoyed it the most when one of the horn players would solo while the other two kept with the melody.
I've never been good at dissecting jazz. I'll just say that The Magnetic Ear will make you dance.
JEFF ALBERT IS AN AMAZING TROMBONE PLAYER!
