Tulsa, Oklahoma ─ Chris Combs, guitarist, composer and member of the Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, offers his debut solo album, “Combsy”. Based out of Tulsa, OK, Combs has written, arranged and produced his solo effort.
With influences like Charles Mingus, Madlib, George Harrison, James Blake, J Dilla, Radiohead, Marc Ribot, “Combsy” is a lush, groove-heavy album that under the careful watch of Combs shows a tremendous amount of emotional depth and maturity as an artist. “Combsy” may be a debut, but there’s nothing amateur about it. Combs deftly sources jazz, hip-hop, electronic and rock genres in creating a sonic landscape that is all his own.
“Combsy” layers horns and rhythm instruments in a rich, nuanced fashion that allows space for Combs’ guitar work. At times, the bandleader and architect of this project uses his playing to give direction or cues for change, while at others, he takes the opportunity of the space created to spread out and explore. Although far from careful, “Combsy” comes to the ear as curated and intentional and with a healthy sense of both the history and future of the genre.
Primarily tracked in October 2016, the core tracks were recorded live as a trio to 2" tape at Fellowship Hall in Little Rock, AR with Aaron Boehler (bass) and Andrew Bones on (drums, vibraphone).
Combs then took those recordings on a swampy journey to New Orleans where horns were added. At Marigny Studio, Combs added Brad Walker (tenor sax, Sturgill Simpson), Dan Oestreicher (bass and bari sax, Trombone Shorty), Carly Meyers (trombone, Roar). With all components in place, Combs finished the project in his home studio.
