She’s Not the Hurting Kind by Anton Commissaris: Review
Anton Commissaris is a San Francisco Bay Area-based composer, pianist, and performer. His jazzy track “She’s Not the Hurting Kind” contains pleasant, embracing, and melodic vocals. The artist sings of his blossoming relationship and the expectations and doubts he has for his joy, harmony, and love.
Anton Commissaris presents a smooth jazz performance in “She’s Not the Hurting Kind”. In addition to that, sophisticated country music-like fillers and arrangement breathes new life into the composition. It’s a wonderful fusion that pertains to a lovely cadence. I find it quite delightful when there’s a story in a song. So, whenever the singer talks about himself or his endeavors it draws you in slowly and has a comfortable hold on you. Afterward, the backing vocals come on and add a bit of pizzazz to the entirety of the song which is tough to ignore. The elements of jazz and country music fused together within the piano’s chord progressions and the violin’s playful presence.
Anton’s track gives off the melodic vibe of loneliness, but on the other side of the coin, a more affectionate piece is present. This is evident from the songwriting mechanics at play, so it’ll surely be a comfy track to hear and ponder upon. Jazz is such a diverse genre, with an abundance of chord sequences available and the freedom to build something is true artistic freedom. So, it moved my musical core when I heard all the changes and transitions, especially from the piano portions.
