Your Daily Lick: Brian Kelly

Afterplay (SkyLight Music)

Brian Kelly's piano-based instrumental music has a whiff of new age, but don't hold that against it. Throughout Afterplay, the swing and complexity of melodic jazz and the studio precision of Steely Dan counteract any inherent wishy-washiness. Sax, flute, trumpet, trombone, and more help Kelly's quiet compositions make a confident statement.
