In her latest Musical Memoirs post, McNeil reviews several new LLP releases, including Ulysses Owens Jr. Big Band’s Soul Conversations, Berta Moreno’s Tumaini, and the Ted Nash/Glenn Close collaboration Transformation.
Soul Conversations: “Ulysses Owens Jr. takes a mind-blowing solo excursion on his trap drums. I appreciate his power, his creativity and technical wizardry..the driving force behind their entire production is the amazing and relentless drum skill of Ulysses Owens Jr.”
Tumaini: “Musically, the album concept and Berta Moreno’s compositions make this project both unique and inspired.”
Transformation: “Ted Nash has created an orchestrated back-drop for the spoken word story of “Transformation,” shared by the amazing voices of both actors, Glenn Close and Wayne Brady.”
