Rich Perry: Doxy
If you’re not familiar with Rich Perry, then you’ve been missing out on a real talent who has spent the past decade working incognito with pianist Harold Danko’s quartet and recording for SteepleChase. The set of standards chosen for inclusion here are nothing out of the ordinary, yet they really only function as a starting point for the trio’s musical explorations anyway. Perry embraces the horn with a rich and full-bodied approach that keeps things engaging over the course of this hour set. He’s got some serious chops but chooses to go for the heart. Maybe that’s why he continues to be a shining star of the SteepleChase roster and Doxy gets the stamp of excellence without any reservations.
