Jack Reilly Trio (Blue-Sean-Green) Unichrom Ltd. Jack Reilly is an interesting study in contrasts, Bill Evans is omnipresent in his playing, but there is a classical edge that gives him a unique style [with] musical depth. Jack Six on Bass and Drummer Joe Cocuzzo provide the ideal accompaniment. Ever the spear carriers, they do not overplay but perform superbly in support. 'Halloween' This tune is a treat with tricky machinations by Reilly. Delicious humor with a hint of darkness dancing just below the surface. Jack Reilly gleefully explores the 88's. Spirited playing by all. 'Waltz For Fall' Shades of Bill Evans with the leader's personal touch. '526' There is a musical story here played with much feeling, highlighted by a jazzy finish. 'Blue-Sean-Green' Some blues and some quirkily swinging piano with a mention of Monk in an early phrase. Hip stuff. 'Floral Space' A truly romantic theme with a touch of sadness. Beautifully executed by all.
