CD review of Brian Kelly / Afterplay album by Creations Magazine. “Afterplay is an exciting contemporary jazz album which engages the listener from the very first note. I was blown away by the immediacy, the insistence of the opening cut “River Rush;” a driving, smooth and satisfying offering which I only wished lasted three times longer! …”
“Brian Kelly follows his brilliant debut release POOLS OF LIGHT with yet another outstanding, compelling collection of originals… The musical integrity and lyrical sensitivity that Mr. Kelly brings to the table for his projects is clearly evident on this release…”
Afterplay, the new CD by composer and pianist Brian Kelly, continued to hold the #3 position on the NAR Top 100 Radio Chart in December 2008.
“Afterplay” is pianist/composer Brian Kelly’s follow-up to his exceptional 2004 debut, “Pools of Light.” Bright and upbeat, “Afterplay” provides a bit of sonic optimism in these days of uncertainty and change.
