Michael Oberling – Rhodes Less Travelled – Friday Fox Recordings

Reaching release 21 is the pun in title that shouldn’t detract you. Because this is a first-rate piece of music that boasts not only the ultra-cool, reaching depths others can’t reach, Fender Rhodes but also an amalgamation breezy trumpet blasts all over the course of smouldering drums and bass on Dream. Happy Hour, proceeds with tougher beats and further explorations of the electric piano and muted trumpet plus general all-round funkiness. Last Call, then pumps out House beats to accompany probing Detroit bass, leaving the standout title track to tease you into submission via the warm rush of language and re-assuring chord sequences alongside contrasting, heightened strings and finally raspy Organ hits.

Release: August 14
