Tangria Jazz Group
Tangria Jazz Group

Tangria Jazz Group consists of leader and drummer Sheryl Mebane and Simon Rochester on piano and Justin Hillman playing bass. Their new album is likeable solid jazz with covers and originals mixed for good measure.

"Nature Boy" gets an expansive, dreamy reading that really works. John Coltrane's "Impressions" gets an inspired, fluid treatment that proves the trios talent and proves how well they play together. Sheryl Mebane's own track "teach yourself to live elsewhere" is beautiful and is played sweetly and with great flair. Tangria Jazz Group is really a good band and this album is great.
