about

With “Whisper Not,” Kavanaugh creates a melodic, harmonically rich picture that showcases a guitar player with rare soul and finesse, as well as a bandleader with a unique yet accessible vision. The repertoire is an appealing collection of lesser-known nuggets from the jazz songbook, and unexpected elements appear right out of the gate with the title track’s pairing of sun-dappled vibraphone and toothy blues guitar tones.

The breezy bossa nova “Poinciana” surprises with nods to Esquivel and the twanging baritone guitar of a spaghetti western, while under Kavanaugh’s direction, Fats Waller’s “Jitterbug Waltz” descends to earth from a dreamy stratosphere where a clarinet trades lines with an interstellar Les Paul. Kavanaugh pulls out the syncopated bop with a take on Django Reinhardt’s “Swing 48” that sounds like the lost soundtrack to a cartoon short involving spies, gangsters and unsafe driving.

The original composition “On the Way to Your House” has an infectious, playful melody and soulful call-and-response Hammond B-3 that shows Kavanaugh to be an artist who can both honor and build upon the great traditional jazz and blues genres.
