Phillip Strange and David Friesen: Quiet and Two For The Show

By Published: March 1, 2000
Phillip Strange Quiet : Solo piano recitals of standards and originals with a Euro-Classic feel. Mr. Strange blends grandiosity with keen improvisation yet rarely loses sight of the melody while employing an elegant touch. Beautifully recorded! * * * ½

David Friesen Two For The Show The great bassist performs a series of sprightly and thoroughly sonorous duets with saxophonist Michael Brecker, guitarist John Scofield, trumpeter Clark Terry and others. Engaging, entertaining and played from the heart! Listen to Friesen harmonize and go note for note with his featured guests yet also provide melody, lofty rhythms and comp as though he were sitting beyond a keyboard. * * * *

Style: Straight-ahead/Mainstream
