The album covers of the iconoclastic British violinist Nigel Kennedy often promise more craziness than they actually de-liver, and that's true in the case of this release, presenting to the buyer a cartoon of a mohawk-wearing figure saying "Shhh!" The contents differ considerably from what the cover would suggest; Shhh! is a more or less straight-ahead album of jazz in various styles. Kennedy came by his inclination toward jazz honestly, playing jazz on the piano as a child and appearing in a duet concert at age 16 with Stéphane Grappelli despite warnings from his teachers. Here he appears, as on several other albums from the 2005-2010 period, with an all-Polish group of musicians (except for Afro-British percussionist Xantoné Blacq). The styles represented range from lounge (The Empty Bottle, track 5) to fusion, with all the music except for the Nick Drake song "River Man" being composed by Kennedy himself. To the violinist's credit, nothing about the album sounds contrived, not even the appearance on "River Man" of a vocalist the listener may be hard pressed to identify as Boy George. Kennedy appears as part of the group rather than hogging the spotlight, and if anything he keeps himself somewhat toward the background. He seems to do best with either the pieces closest to traditional jazz language or those in which he pursues really unusual textures; the best thing on the whole album is the title track, where he explores the extratonal "noise" of the violin bow as it mixes with that of a quietly played saxophone. In the harder-driving pieces there's a lack of a swinging quality, and Kennedy's solos seem preplanned; where he accepts this limitation and works with it, he does well. Kennedy fans will find much to enjoy in this release by their hero, who despite his penchant for outrage is never pretentious nor sloppy.
