Hippin'
Alexis Parsons & Connie Crothers
New Artists Records

Alexis Parsons, Connie Crothers – HIPPIN’:  ... Connie’s piano is solidly behind the spoken-word Alexis is doing, especially on pieces like “Exactly… what?”  If you’re not a spoken-word fan, you may not (exactly) “grok” what the duo is doing – but I can tell you, as an early proponent of spoken-word, that on this tune, Alexis rolls all the way from free-form to great blues form, & projects her power all the way!  It’s the title cut, “Hippin’“, that floats my boat in finest form, though… similar, in fact, to some sketches I’ve done before…. totally cool stream-of-consciousness event!  Connie’s piano is pure improv on this one.  I give Alexis & Connie a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for listeners who demand something different in their sonic adventures.  “EQ” (energy quotient) is 4.97.
