Sure, bluewhale is ground zero for cutting-edge jazz, but if you’re not paying attention you might not have noticed the surreptitious increase of other kinds of creative original music happening there. Composer Ted Case, in point, cites songwriters Margaret Glaspy, Emily King and Blake Mills as influences for his band, Serotonin. “The purpose of this project was to feel the joy of writing music for these musicians [in the band], and serotonin is the neurotransmitter associated with joy,” says Case, who puzzlingly chose that name over “Massages, Chocolate & Instagram Kittens.” Serotonin’s piano-driven grooves are anchored by two standout singers, Amber Navran and Michael Mayo, the latter of whom is without a doubt the best young male jazz singer in Los Angeles. Their honeyed voices will make you forget all about that little bottle of Zoloft in your glove compartment.
