Jason Bradley Livesay, ASCAP(100.00%)
There are thrills at every turn on Jason Livesay's latest FPM production release, Soundtrack Action Vol 1, but as always, there is also orchestral beauty all throughout. "Assembling Revolt" is a turbulent rocket of string and horn stings with percussive shrapnel, yet gilded with alluring piano. And the stately "Executive Power" begins tenderly with a soft string bed and clever clarinet, then takes flight on a brass sting and deep, punchy drums. No matter how charged or even volatile this collection becomes, it never loses its steadfast posture.
