Tony Pacini Trio: Live At Jimmy Mak's (Saphu Records) by Tony Pacini
What The Critics Say:
ARTIST: TONY PACINI
ALBUM / CD: "Tony Pacini Trio - Live At Jimmy Mak's"
"This is the album Tony's fans just knew would come along sooner or
later. And let's hope there are "more from where this came from," so
to speak. You see, this album gives Tony's ever-swinging trio (Ed
Bennett, bass and Tim Rap, drums) an opportunity to record live before
an attentive, enthusiastic audience. It also was an occasion upon
which Tony had the privilege of playing a top of the line Yamaha, a
piano valued at more than I paid for my first two houses! Given these
plusses, Tony and his pals were at the top of their game, and having
been in his audience that night, I can attest to that. It doesn't hurt
at all that Tony chooses such evergreens as "Freddie Freeloader",
"Stompin' At The Savoy", a funky "Love For Sale" and the rarely heard
"Brotherhood Of Man", all from the upbeat list. To these, add gorgeous
renditions of Percy Faith's "Maybe September" and Thad Jones' tender
"A Child Is Born", both on the ballad side of things. Two expressive
Pacini originals illustrate Tony's facility for writing attractive and
cohesive melody lines, "Beyond The Veil" and "First Light". Tony
Pacini has grown in all facets of his music in recent years. He's
getting more gigs and with his plentiful musical gifts strongly
surfacing, deserves them. Catch him at Jimmy Mak's or Wilf's
Restaurant (Portland, OR), sometime soon. He's something special!"
