Regional Album You Should Own Infinite Loop – Brandon Coleman Quartet
A goal at bt Media Group is to be always searching for new music. There are too many great regional artists out there to settle on mediocre. Our goal is to dig through the muck and find those killer bands you might not know about yet. Remember as we always say.."Your new favorite band could be the next one you listen too.."
This week we bring you Infinite Loop a new release by Pike Co native & Cincinnati resident Brandon Coleman. To review or explain Infinite Loop on a technical side would be full of inaccuracies & assumptions but...after listening to this project words like groove, free form, modern jazz, musicianship all come to mind. Infinite Loop takes you on a musical journey. It explores arrangements & progressions appreciated by musicians, jazz lovers and fans of the fusion. These songs aren't 3 minute pop bites.. these are 7 course meals. Fans of Snarky Puppy, Cory Henry, Scofield and the like would love this Cd. Well worth the purchase. Want to expand your musical pallet.. buy Infinite Loop
