Vick Lavender – Architect CD – Sophisticado

Veteran Vick Lavender and a talented crew of instrumentalists team up for the first full length release on Sophisticado. Architect comprises 12 songs swathed in delicate warmth, ranging from tepid to sultry. “Rial” leans toward the cooler side of things, painting a blue-hued, trumpet-laden, sleepy, urban scene. Toward the more sweltering end of the spectrum are “Heritage Song” and “Havana.” These two songs find Vijay Tellis- Nayak and Lavender going to town on the keys while Joe Rendon accentuates the mood on percussion.

Architect has an appreciableĀ arc and incorporates streaks of jazz, r&b, house, and afro-cuban influences. Be sure to check the credits to see who is responsible for the lovely instrumentation throughout.
