Three for All
A deep version of "I Only Have Eyes for You" expresses the romantic heart of the song with nary a drop of doo-wop sappiness. Liebman is gently emotive, Swallow spare and lyrical, and Nussbaum delightfully precise. The highlight is their version of Miles' "All Blues." Swallow plays a funky bass line, giving the song a wonderful lift; Liebman finds the melodyâ's slippery slope; and Nussbaum gets ample time front and center, his rhythmic patterns a joy to behold.
What a pleasure to hear beautiful music played so joyfully and masterfully. A lot of life has gone into this recording, and the result is jazz full of originality, plus grateful acknowledgment to the old masters from three new ones.
