“Zach Brock And The Coffee Achievers arrived a while back with little fanfare. The top-notch packaging was impressive for an unknown, but what was really surprising was Zach Brock himself. The Chicago violinist plays with easy virtuosity based in swing Jazz and post-bop. His compositions groove in a way that recalls a gypsy swing version of Charlie Hunter, which is tribute to the strong support cast on keyboard, bass and drums who take the tunes out and work through them. But it all eventually comes back to Brock’s violin -- pulling lilting emotions, making the strings pop, and generally giving it his all, the young violinist won’t strictly be a Chicago treasure for long.”
