The music of Jeff Denson's Secret World pushes through the boundaries of conventions in music. By inventively mixing the world of composed and improvised music, Jeff Denson creates a unique language of his own, where intoxicating melodies and rhythms transport the listener away to unknown lands where vivid hues of tone paints the aural canvas of the inner ear. The music is steeped in the jazz tradition, where the propulsive rhythms are the heartbeat of the music and the musicians are master improvisers of harmonic structures, song forms, and melodic invention. Where the music diverges from the jazz tradition and creates its unique fingerprint in the handling of the juxtaposition of the composed and improvised material, the roles and uses of the instruments within the compositions, its musical forms and the unmistakably memorable melodic language of Jeff Denson. The strength of the melodies transcend genre or idiomatic leanings and plants themselves in the ears of the listeners, leaving them singing them long after the music has stopped.
