Randy McGill

New Music Critique: Randy McGill

Production 7

Houston-based Randy McGill and his cohorts show enough chops and versatility to suggest they’d make a worthwhile booking at an appropriate venue. “Your Eyes” is a funky strutter with a heavenly vocal chorus, a throbbing bassiness and overall classic vibe that’s unfortunately marred by a childlike, over-simplistic piano motif. “Nakupen- da Wewe” uses authentic African rhythms as a touchstone to explore more modern synth-driven sounds. “Kansas City Shuffle” is a lively, classic big-band outing. McGill and company can indeed play, though they still have work to do if they intend to rival the jazz-fusion dazzlers who’ve come before them.
