Sean Wayland
Pistachio
Seed

There’s an air of Steely Dan wafting over this project, particularly on tunes like “Club Sandwhich” and “Don’t Get Me Wrong,” which pianist Sean Wayland sings with engaging Fagen-esque flair. The rhythm tandem of drummer Keith Carlock (a current Dan sideman) and electric bassist Tim Lefebvre is rock solid throughout, while guitar slinger Adam Rogers provides heat on the Headhunters-styled jam “Arc Is Enough” and the heavy-grooving “Stuck in Oz.” Wayland switches from electric to acoustic piano on the album’s lone uptempo swinger, an interactive piano trio number titled “John Coltrane” that features Carlock in high gear.
