Artist: The Rivington Project Album: "The Rivington Project With Don Broaden" CD Review: Genre: Jazz Sounds Like: ? Technical Grade: 10 Production/Musicianship Grade: 10 Commercial Value: 7 Overall Talent Level: 10 Songwriting Skills: 10 Performance Skill: 10 Best Songs: All Weakness: None CD Review: I listened to this project for about 60 seconds before I determined that I was listening to a potential 2006 Muse's Muse Award winner for best Jazz artist. With Victor Magnani on guitar; George Coleman Jr on drums; Marty Rizek on bass; and Don Braden on Tenor sax, the Rivington Project is not only rivetting, it's a true Jazz lover's treat. Turning in what they describe as a musical gumbo of Jazz, Rock, Funk, and experimental music, these New York based musicians consistently display superlative composition skills and a myriad of influences that mesh together and comprise a solid project that can be enjoyed from start to finish.
