The Independent Musicians CD Reviews|
Welcome to the EvO:R Independent CD Reviews Section.
I would like to take a few minutes to introduce ourselves to everyone. The EvO:R review section
features reviews from various independent musicians that submit material for our consideration.
I wanted to let you know a little
about our review teams collective thoughts on music. It's important to let the people that we review know how we
think of their music and how we listened to their creations.
First of all, we strongly believe that if your music stinks then
the world should know about it! After all, you have the nerve to charge as much for
your stuff as the majors do so it better be pretty damn good. If your material is good, we'll be glad to
tell the world. I We will hold nothing back! That is a promise.

Song Samples from the CD

Genre: Spoken Word: With Music
Release Date: 2009
Bringing poetry to life, "Empty Swings," creatively composed by Jeff Callahan brilliantly blends spoken word with Jazz Fusion.
Each track features Callahan verbalizing life and nature with a voice that is soft and gentle. Callahan paints pictures with
lyrics like "...wildly rummaging through button-down clouds and in pot bellied raindrops smothering the haunted beating of your
nightstand clock" on the track "Sweet Dreams Earth."
Even though the album is focused around the spoken poems, the instrumental
background deserves credit as the cast of musicians deftly perform with emotive tonality. For instance, listen as the sweet and
tender electric piano and soulful saxophone cascade around the poetic words on “Slide, Slide,

"Empty Swings" gives a listener great imagery with its poetic words and is complemented by wonderful music making it an
album well worth having.
