As always, excellent. Lots of classic cool jazz and country swing mixed with a smidge of honkytonk, all wrapped in Julian's modern jazz sensibilities like a super burrito.
Very fun, lot's of sonic humor.
I heard or read in an interview that they only met the day before to go over the songs/charts before recording. It's amazing how in sync they are both live and on the record. Those darn real musicians.
Love love love the guitar tone from 1:15 to 1:25. Dislike when it gets more aggressive. An unpleasant kind of breakup grit, ime, and the double stops make it worser.
The drums sound very present. The guitar's reverb distances the performance from the listener, if the listener is me, lol. I would say the guitarist's choice of reverb defeats the excellent recording engineer.
A shame 'coz the basic guitar tone and the dexterity and the imagination are tremendous. ime.
(Won't comment on the bass - laptop playback only - except to say he's a monster to be able to follow all that with little rehearsal)
edit to say - If the drums weren't so well-played, and recorded, I probably wouldn't nitpick the guitar. I'm enjoying Subjective Saturday.
