Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli releases debut LP, ‘A Blind Man’s Blue,’ from solo jazz project
Dominic Lalli has always lead Big Gigantic‘s charge with his saxophone in hand. A classically trained musician, Lalli decided to return to his roots in the midst of quarantine when he released a jazz instrumental under his birth name titled “Together.” On July 6, Lalli returned with his second solo jazz track, “A Blind Man’s Blue.” Not long thereafter, the musician followed this sonic sequel with his jazz project’s debut album of the same name on July 10th.
Clocking in at an impressive ten minutes, “A Blind Man’s Blue” served as a true testament to Lalli’s prowess not only as a producer but also a musician and composer. The rolling saxophone melodies suspended atop a frenetic drum kit pattern made listeners feel like they were in a smokey cigar lounge in the early 1900. More importantly, it primed them for what was to come on the full-length project. The first two tracks were an indication of what A Blind Man’s Blue now confirms: Lalli’s LP is sure to appeal to those with a refined sonic palette.
