Discovered by the St. Louis-based Paradise is a Frequency crew, “Bob Siebert’s 1983 album Six Lyric Pieces is the kind of record that’s been flipped by for years. Noodly contemporary jazz with a fretless bass? No thanks. The guy is smoking a pipe on the back cover of the record, for shit’s sake. And yet “Rain” is a wildly compelling listen that effortlessly drifts between smooth jazz and new age. Or as Mario puts it: ‘Cascading ambient jazz, drip dropping dreamily on the windshield of a parked car.'” B3 “Inside The Music Box” is also a wonderful listen featuring a deceptively simple but incredibly addictive African thumb piano melody followed by light percussion and woody fretless bass.
