I made up a definition, solely for myself, a highly subjective description of the result of a truly spontaneous musical interaction. I call it “pure music”. It’s not some term that musicologists might use to analyze musical phenomena. It’s personal. It describes a feeling I get in an ideal improvisational setting. It defines what happens to me when I feel that certain spark of creative excitement beyond the material, structure, form, harmony, etc.

On her newest album, "Bluer Than Blue," Sweet Megg combines Nashville musicians with early jazz players from the roster of Turtle Bay Records artists. The band's style is relaxed and convivial, using elements of both styles, and the solos flow together without any stylistic conflict. The repertoire was pulled equally from jazz and country standards, with one new song co-composed by Megg and Justin Poindexter. While the general mood of the album is joyous and upbeat, most of the lyrics are about heartaches, which explain the album's title.

A double LP that presented Willems as an original explorer as well as a committed bandleader, it was her boldest statement to date.

In a very casual-sounding way, Canadian vocalist Angela Verbrugge offers truths of the heart, urgent and genuine.
