June 20: Jason Bodlovich at the Russian River Brewing Company

Posted By on Wed, Jun 17, 2009 at 1:16 PM

Even from the title, Hammerhead, one can ascertain that Jason Bodlovich’s newest album is more forceful and driven than the average instrumental guitar release. Heavy percussion, funk grooves and technical precision underscore the album’s role as a conjurer of images. “Grazin’,” though not a country song, still conjures haystacks and wooden fences, while “10 Rays” is the sound of sunrise, as magisterial as it gets. When Bodlovich swipes his pick across the round-wound strings while picking out low notes on “Lumpy,” it’s just like skipping through sidewalk puddles. With Hammerhead, calling Bodlovich a jazz artist isn’t enough anymore. He’s on some other plane. Celebrate his CD release show on Saturday, June 20, at the Russian River Brewing Company. 725 Fourth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. Free. 707.545.2337.Gabe Meline
