Rising Tide – Frank Kohl Quartet
Since the ‘90s, guitarist Frank Kohl has been a fixture on the Seattle jazz scene, albeit one of the most underrated players. On Rising Tide, his fourth album, he leads a solid band of bassist Steve LaSpina, drummer Jon Doty, and pianist (and brother) Tom Kohl. “The record is crisp and comfortable; Kohl’s thoughtful production glides listeners seamlessly through a handful of new compositions, handpicked standards, a singular live recording, and a dessert of solo guitar to highlight Kohl’s remarkably nimble, pure tones” (Halynn Blanchard, Earshot Jazz).
