“All Over Again” review – record-journal.com

 

 

 

 

Jazz guitarist Thom Douvan returns with the follow-up to his critically acclaimed album “Brother Brother.” His new album entitled “All Over Again,” was released on March 3rd through Redwood Road Records and showcases some of Thom’s finest work to date. The new ten song release begins with “Sephardia” as Thom lets his playing take the lead on this rock infused jazz number. His backing band fleshes out the song with their collaborative effort. Thom and his band settle down into a more classic jazz feel on “Ethersphere” and sound so smooth on the light atmospheric jazz of “Deja Vu All Over Again.” The highlight of the album is the gentle, inviting sound of “Then I Met You” featuring Lynne Fiddmont on vocals. The addition of Mads Tolling violin gives “Rhonda” a light, airy feel with almost a Celtic vibe running through it. The album finishes with the seven-minute jazz funk of “Believe You Me” with Rob McDonald on vocals. The song gets a two-minute instrumental/scat reprise before heading into the album’s two bonus tracks. Both songs feature shorter versions of “Then I Met You” (one a radio edit and the other an instrumental version of the song).
