Jacob Melchior: It's About Time
Tucked away in a very excellent piano trio offering, drummer Jacob Melchior

's It's About Time, is a single vocal performance by Frank Senior

of the Coots/Lewis standard, "For All We Know."

Pianist Tadataka Unno and bassist Hassan (JJ Wiggins) Shakur provide a very gentle undercurrent beneath Senior's smoky, Jon Hendricks

-influenced vocals. Unno and Shakir, quietly introduce the piece, the arco bass giving the piece a slight antique, movie soundtrack feel.

Melchior is unobtrusive, gently guiding the rhythm. Senior sings fully, filling the space around him, provided by a judicious band obviously well-versed in providing vocal support. The entire recording is a gem, but "For All We Know" begs for a full vocal recital with this band.

Personnel: Tadataka Unno: piano; Hassan JJ Shakur: bass; Jacob Melchior: drums; Frank Senior: vocals.

Record Label: Self Produced
