Rick Stone Trio: Fractals

Read "Fractals" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Trio recordings hold a special place in jazz. Bass and drums, teaming with a piano or guitar, give the front man the most room for instrumental self expression (saxophone out front is a different matter). Though he may not be the busiest of guitarists in terms of recording, with a good stretch of time between Samba de Novembre (Jazzland, 2004) and Fractals, Rick Stone shines in the format. Teaching at Jazzmobile and Hofstra, and playing regularly around New York City ...

It has been a long interval getting back to the recording studio. Rick Stone explains that his other obligations to family, running a studio, writing for guitar publications--and, most importantly, patiently waiting to find and select the music that ...

Rick Stone: Samba de Novembro

Read "Samba de Novembro" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Guitarist Rick Stone strums into Samba de Novembro 's opener, the title tune, with a clear, crisp, precise sound, joined twenty seconds later by Tardo Hamer's succinct and delicate piano notes--like raindrops into a pond. Up-tempo, fluid, an enticing South American mood. The guitar and piano--tangy versus sweet--bounce off each other nicely; and Matt Wilson, who seems to be sitting in the drummer's seat on everyone's sets these days, weaves subtle and sinuous textures behind it all. An auspicious opening ...

Rick Stone: Samba de Novembro

Read "Samba de Novembro" reviewed by John Kelman


With so many guitarists out there mining the Jim Hall approach, it becomes challenging to find distinctive voices. Guitarist Rick Stone is certainly one to watch, but while establishing credibility on the New York scene he records infrequently, making it difficult to gain a foothold in the minds and ears of the listening public. Even more curious is the fact that his new release, Samba de Novembro , was recorded nearly four years ago and is only now seeing the ...
