Jazz music is still alive and well across the world. But, few artists tell the real stories of life through Jazz music quite like Michael Egleton. His newest album, In the Q, has been well-received because of his and his teams artistry. With terrific tone and syncopated staccato structures, In the Q puts distinctive jazz at a whole new level.
Egleton shares authentic stories in his music, which connect directly with his listeners. In the song, “Again,” Egleton speaks about the raw and honest times when love impacts life. The song begins with a male lead yearning for his woman by saying: “I ask you not to leave this way / Leave the door open for another day,” while the woman replies: “I said maybe and we’ll see / This time, you really hurt me.” With so much music these days built on unreal realities, “Again” speaks to the truth of how hard relationships can really be in life.
The song, “When Do I Go,” shares the difficulty of being alone and the feelings that can go along with the emptiness and sorrow. Egleton strikes a chord with his listeners who deal with the same predicament: “Where is the love when I need it / When there is none to be found.” Human existence ponders this universal question, and Egleton gets it right with this song speaking to the hearts of people around the world.
“Fight” articulates the difficulty that people face in a world which can be hard to navigate: “I’m fighting in a game / That’s already rigged / Rigged for me to fail / And my grave to dig.” Egleton expresses the universal truth of “Fight or Flight.” Humankind has the option to take flight away from their struggles, or they can fight to change what’s wrong about the world. The energy in this song highlights a complete album that music aficionados are sure to cherish.
In the Q is built upon the jazz characteristics of dance and R&B with collective vocals that are pleasurable to the human ear.
