Crush of Night ~ Izz
A friend gave me a copy of this album - I had not heard of the band IZZ before, but I am a fan now! IZZ is a close knit N.Y. based six piece 'family' group w/ guitar, bass, (2) drummer/percussionist, keyboards, vocals - male/female. Well played, melodic, and interesting music throughout the seven tracks on 'Crush of Night', the second album to what I understand will be a conceptual trilogy - the 'Darkened Room' was the first album (also awesome). Comparison's to other progressive rock bands are always easy, as so many musical styles can be derivative, but IZZ has managed to find their own style; soaring alone in an often crowded sky.
Discount Fireworks A Collecti ~ Over the Rhine
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Compilation, May 18 2013
I had heard a 2011 song titled "The King Knows How" on public radio, and was intrigued enough to search the band on YouTube.

The album has a good feel from start to finish, and my cd copy came with a nice booklet w/ notes & pics.

I am not typically a fan of hip-hop music, or familiar with the band Arrested Developement, in which Dionne Farris was a member of. I recall hearing the hit 'I Know' on the radio in the nineties, but only recently heard the album 'Wild Seed - Wild Flower' through a friend. Dionne has a very powerful and expressive vocal range, writes in a wide range of styles (soul, jazz, funk, rock), and tackles topics with weight and meaning. The sound production for this 1995 recording is excellent; musicianship superb - written/produced by Dionne with co-write/production help from Randy Jackson, David Harris, Milton Davis, David Frank, and others.

Dionne's first solo effort pulls all of… Read more
