New Latitude Excels with "Convergence"

~ CD Review ~

Jan 30, 2015
Kimmy Sophia Brown

Jazz guitar has a language all its own. New Latitude, comprised of Jim Carr and Dave Erickson, used skill and intuition to create eleven lovely duets. “New Day” sounds like part of a soundtrack for an upbeat scene in a movie. I wonder if Dave got the inspiration for the song “Trailblazing” from skiing or some other energizing sport.

Convergence album coverI’m guessing “Seven Falls” was inspired by a place in the Rocky Mountains near Jim’s home. Many of the compositions are themes written in honor of nature. “No Matter What” sounds like it could be an old Wes Montgomery piece.

If you like calming jazz guitar, you’ll like this CD. The artists and backup musicians have created a tight and enjoyable album featuring beautiful interplay between the two guitarists. Eduardo Bijoux Barbosa, David Young, and Deon Kuhl contribute outstanding back up on bass, drums, and percussion. The production and arrangements are top flight.

New LatitudeThis album deserves to get a lot of airplay on jazz stations. Please visit their website at to learn more.
