I just heard an advance copy of Gold Sounds by James Carter, Cyrus Chestnut, Ali Jackson, and Reginald Veal (it was released Sept. 27). It's new interpretations of songs by Pavement and I put off listening to it for a while because it sounded like it had to be a gimmick. Boy, was I wrong! It has really good sound and the music--at least in these arrangements--is pretty exciting.
I'm sure I'll end up useing it in reviews, but the print cycle takes so long and you guys should be checking this one out ASAP.
