Dan Rose: The Water’s Rising

Guitarist Dan Rose has created an album of original compositions that reflect diversity in both mood and sound. The material ranges from the mellow, melodic mood of “Fountains” to riffs of intentional dissonance on “When Your Door Is a Jar.” A veteran of the Paul Bley bands and the New York loft scene, Rose is a high-energy musician, but settles into a pensive mood for “Sometimes It’s Real.” He goes funky on “It’s No Mistery,” then shifts into a rock-fusion mode for “Teal Blue” and “Scant Evidence.” His equally eclectic colleagues are pianist Peter Madsen, bassist Peter Warren and drummer Victor Lewis.
