Single Commentary: “June” by Jeremy Weinglass featuring violinist Chris Woods

Pianist Jeremy Weinglass’ ambitious album “Odyssey: A Twelve Month Evolution” is a project dealing with the experimentation of Jazz in a planned construct of the changing seasons. The single “June” is the mid-point of this conceptual piece of musicianship.

“June” is an emotional track which successfully burrows its way into your soul and consciousness. Wineglass sets the tone with a slow languishing melody that allows Chris Woods’ violin an opening to heighten the passionate pitch of this song. It’s nearly indescribable as “June” is a track that is felt and experienced more than heard. If you’re in pain, it amplifies it. If you’re the least bit happy you’ll soon enter into a state of rapture. Essentially this song speaks to you on a level which moves beyond the ego and delves into places where you dare not look. For a track that is barely two minutes long it packs a mesmerizing punch where you’ll be clamoring to get your hands on the entire album. Imagine what the rest of the months sound like since “June” is so extraordinary.
