Tony Genge: Blues Walk (2001)
From the opening notes of Kenny Drew's "Modal Mood" to Red Garland's "The P.C. Blues," this puppy swings! It pushes ever forward with the concise abandon of a seasoned drunk; precariously ready to fall at times but always maintaining a tenuous balance. These old cats can keep it kicking. Genge's own compositions such as "Away Falls My Heart" are delicate, original and surprising daring in areas. The songs are stellar and they maintain a lively and hoary maturity seldom found in such an elderly pianist.
