Tim Lyddon: I've Traveled So Far


Sign in to view read count
Tim Lyddon: I've Traveled So Far Pianist Tim Lyddon uses a trio setting on this set of ten songs and creates music that is demanding and inspired. Ably backed by bass and drums he spreads the tunes around on another and back again.

Eight songs are originals by Tim with the other two being standards. "Theme For a Lost Real" allows all to shine, a bass solo by Tom Hubbard and rock solid drumming by Scott Latzky. "Freedom Piece" takes a different turn and allows Tim to explore concise piano textures."Dreamland" flows as if it has taken liquid form. "What Time is It" is a different arrangement than the previous songs and makes its own statement.

Tim pays homage to the two standards, "I Should Care" and "I Thought About You" and still manages to put his own slant on them.

Taken as whole, this music is saturated with art,dignity and good fun. You won't be let down here, jazz is alive and well.
