    Lyle’s latest work filled with ‘accessible jazz’
“Secret World”
Bobby Lyle
Atlantic Jazz
All aboard for the “Secret World,”
jazz pianist Bobby Lyle’s latest com
pilation of pop-jazz tunes.
Lyle’s lively keyboard credentials
range from playing with Sly and the
Family Stone in the 1970s to AlJarreau
and George Benson in the 1980s.
His instrumental format is intended
to rescue the listener’s brain from
lyrics and exhausting vocals.
Yet, in “Spirit Song (Come To
gether),” background vocals unite in
a jazzy spiritual chant. The chant
provides just enough muscle to break
up the bass and saxophone arrange
ment, fused with Lyle’s spirited key
“Spirit Song,” the cream of the
cuts, was written after the Los Ange
les riots in May. Lyle called it a
“musical tribute to this spirit of com
ing together.”
Following the spirit, the soul of
’ 'Sandancc^erCater ahear-far i n u
sion, using saxophones and drums to
overshadow Lyle’s distant, but deli
cate piano runs.
“ParadiseCovc” moves keyboards
from back to the front where they
blend with the bass playing of Larry
Kimpcl and Ndugu Chancier. “Para
dise Cove” puts listeners’ feet on a
sandy beach where they may expect
to hear sea gulls screeching and waves
When birds arc heard tw i tiering on
the next track, listeners may wonder
whether it’s their imagination.
“Flight to Rio,” a snappy piece,
more along the lines of the traditional
side of jazz, boasts of Richard Silvera’s
fancy fretwork and Lyle’s competent
keyboard runs — runs that refuse to
let up.
If any tunes were nominated for
“weakest track,” then “Heart of the
Woman” would win. It tends to drift
toward a jumble of jazz or perhaps it
is just too watered down.
Lyje said that in the late 1.970s, he._
was accused ofcatering jazz down by
injecting elements of pop, and rhythm
and blues.
“All we did was to make it more
accessible to lot of people who got
lost when they tried to listen to main
stream jazz,” he said.
So, if you get lost in mainstream
hard-to-listcn-to jazz, you m ight want
to consider listening to this mellow
sampling — the ultimate mall music
to shop by.
True-blue jazz fans will likely find
“Secret World” similar to winning a
Publishers Clearinghouse dream va
cation, because the mood Lyle sets
with his music can take them to any
island of their choice.
So, it’s well worth the lime to take
a trip to Lyle’s “Secret World.”
