Title - 'Jazz: Outside The Box'
Artist - David Garfield

For those not in the know, David Garfield is a renowned American keyboardist, songwriter, and producer who performs in the Los Angeles music scene.

Furthermore, he has recorded with Smokey Robinson, Cher, Larry Carlton, Steve Lukather, Spinal Tap, George Benson, The Manhattan Transfer, Eros Ramazzotti, and The Rippingtons, and has performed with Freddie Hubbard, Boz Scaggs, Oleta Adams, Brenda Russell, Natalie Cole, and Michael Bolton. Released this past March 23rd, 2018 via Creatchy Records, his long awaited first full length album, Jazz: Outside The Box instantly showcases an extensive and diverse slant to the genre that has been so welcoming to Garfield all these years.

1. 'Fragile'
2. 'Harvest Time (Acoustic)'
3. 'In a Sentimental Mood'
4. 'Roxanne'
5. 'Song for My Father (Full-Length)'
6. 'Rainbow Seeker (Acoustic)'
7. 'Stolen Moments'
8. 'Voodoo Gumbo / Citizen Coryell'
9. 'East Lou Brew'
10. 'Sophisticated Lady'
11. 'Red Baron'
12. 'Country Preacher'
13. 'Prophecy'
14. 'My Favorite Things'
15. 'Song for My Father (Radio Version)'
16. 'Red Baron (Alternate Version)'
17. 'Harvest Time (Extended Version)'

Listening to the tracks contained on Jazz: Outside the Box, it's very evident that this whole project has been a true labor of love for the keyboardist. Word has it that Garfield actually recorded more than four discs worth of music for this on-going Outside the Box project, which means there are many more tracks to be discovered down the line; one can only hope.

ďAll my life, Iím just trying to make music that I really believe in and can get really excited about," Garfield explains. "Itís never fit into one particular category thus, in many ways, Iíve spent my whole music career outside the box."

"Itís never been intentional and itís not like Iím trying to be different just to be different. Iím just trying to be creative while striving for the highest level of musical and artistic integrity. In the long run, my career has taken place outside the box,Ē, he adds.

The opening track, a cover of Sting's 'Fragile' is a haunting exposition of the original track. Stripping it down to its bare core essential, and with vocalist Michael McDonald providing one of his most naked of vocals, the song is a true highlight amongst many gems.

Inclusive of a perky little Latin jazz underbelly groove, 'In a Sentimental Mood' allows percussionist and bandleader Poncho Sanchez to gently introduce congas and shakers to the mix, whereas the astoundingly brilliant 'Roxanne' will have you sitting back, kicking back, and closing your eyes to enhance the whole melodic mood.

An unerring trumpet bass line kicks throughout the track, but it's not long before a band swings into the familiar tones of the song. Garfield is at his best here on this track, for my money, and when the backing vocals turn up to support it all, well, Robbie Wyckoffís lead is only enhanced upon their lush voices. Including some of the final recordings from the late guitarist's Larry Coryell and Chuck Loeb, and combining new and fresh treatments of songs from Sting, Duke Ellington, Horace Silver, Joe Sample and Billy Cobha, trust me when I say you're gonna want to own this CD for your long car journeys.
