This year, Jim Doxas made his debut as a leader with the release of Blind Leap. Alongside fellow Montreal heavyweights Paul Schrofel and Morgan Moore, he delivers a record filled with forward-thinking music. From the start, it’s evident that you won’t find any jazz clichés here, as the trio often changes musical directions on a dime. This open-minded approach is applied to many of Schrofel’s compositions and several covers, including a refreshing take on Wayne Shorter’s “Fall.” This album is a prime example of the creativity that can happen when everyone keeps their ears open.
Personnel: Jim Doxas (drums); Paul Schrofel (piano); Morgan Moore (bass).
