music of John Lake was new to me, this New Yorker is well-known in the music
world as an extremely talented musician, composer, arranger. His debut Seven

freshness to them.

creative fresh take on modern Jazz. Next up is Nightwatch, which Jeff
Davis contributes some well-placed serious drum chops to complement the long
and lovely piano segments.
Ladybird showcases bass player Marcos Varela
whose bass underscores Steven Feifke's piano to create an exceptionally
evocative piece. The release continues with Whelmed with its horn
opening that marks the pace for this well-paced arrangement.
Intro to Pearls featuring Steven Feifke is
hauntingly beautiful with its 1.41-minute solo piano that segues into the
upbeat, lively Pearls of the Tartar that really cooks as the band
layers in horns, drums, and bass to complement the piano. Sliding into A
Shade of Jade, the release continues to hit its mark for a memorable

and it is a stunner, a musical wow of a track. The release continues with 2
more great tracks, Signal Changes and cloud-down, followed by John
Lake working his trumpet magic on the closing track, Everything I Love.
While John Lake was new to me before his Seven Angels release, he is now
firmly planted front and center on my music radar. I am looking forward to
hearing more from this talented musician, composer, and arranger.
