'Red Pajamas' is the splendid second CD of trombonist and composer Jay Vonada, a welcome follow-up to his 2008 debut, 'Jammin’'. Red Pajamas features Vonada – a well-respected, busy Central Pennsylvania musician – with two favorite colleagues: organist Alex Sell and drummer Kevin Lowe. They form a spirited, percolating trio, delving here into an array of natty originals with zest and invention.
The 9-song program kicks off with “Blue Mood,” a Vonada blues (he wrote all the songs save two) with a tidy line and unhurried gait. Here, as throughout, the musicians play with an alluring musicality: the leader boasts a glowing-to-raspy tone and a wealth of improvisational swagger; Sell creates engaging sonic shades from the keyboard; and ardent timekeeper Lowe offers deft percussive sounds. November Day” is a peppy waltz that opens with a crackling Lowe solo. Jay’s subsequent outing reveals his gleaming sound and powerhouse technique. The Latin-bent “Fresh Start” is so well-crafted it sounds like a standard. Jay’s lines pack punch, and Alex scores with soft, light-filled organ sounds.
Lowe’s “Not A Thing” has an invigorating, make-you-dance “New Orleans street-beat, second line feel that’s great to play on,” says Jay. Sell’s “Jeanie B.” is a medium-slow groover headlined by a singable theme. The band’s finger-popping efforts enhance its charm. Jay’s “Sea Jam” has a funky rhythmic undercurrent he calls “a New Jack Swing kind of feel. Crowds enjoy it.” A shout chorus adds zip. “Merino,” with Jay employing the cup mute for a nice color change, leads to the title track, a dandy bossa. The waltz blues, “E in 3,” brings this ace affair to a vibrant close.
This is hip, refreshing music, worthy of repeated visits. - Zan Stewart
