Biography

Lin Rountree: The Musical Storyteller
written by Althea Blackford
for aboutBlackBoston.com

It’s smooth jazz at its best. Lin Rountree has a smooth, relaxing feel about his music. One thing that is remarkable is that he tells stories with his music. There is a clear sense of direction Rountree takes you on. It’s a musical journey with each song.

“For Your Love” sets the tone for the album. You know that you are in store for a smooth ride in this song. The song has a commercial appeal to it where it can be easily heard on any jazz station. His title track “Groovetree” is a very fun track. Rountree makes you want to dance. You can tell he’s having fun jamming away on this track. A song that doesn’t really bring the wow factor is “The Message.” This ode to love is very nice but we lose Rountree in this one.

The vocalist has a very seductive voice that lures and keeps you listening to the song. It would have been nice to hear more Rountree than the vocalist. It could have been a call and response with Rountree and the vocalist verses Rountree being a background instrument. He does have a solo at the end which is too late.


“Villicious” is definitely a song meant for the grown and sexy. Rountree really paints a picture with this track. The scene one can envision is a night time city backdrop and a couple is spending quality time with each other. “Akire” has a nice drum beat that accents Rountree’s performance.
