Darrell Grant: Our Mr. Jackson
Pianista di vaglia, Darrell Grant ha il pregio di non deludere chi si aspetta classe, squisita musicalità e buon gusto nella pratica jazzistica.

Queste componenti si ritrovano nell'omaggio discografico a Milt Jackson e al Modern Jazz Quartet. Our Mr Jackson è un CD interessante per la musicalità e le sofisticate soluzioni melodiche, anche se prive di grandi colpi d'ala.

È un esempio di elegante mainstream dove emergono la grande tecnica, l'equilibrio, la cura dei particolari, la distesa cantabilità, il sobrio controllo di timbri e dinamiche.

Ai jazzofili più smaliziati questa proposta potrebbe risultare derivativa rispetto al modello prescelto. Nel complesso, un buon CD che ha i suoi punti di forza nella coesione intensa, nelle sfumature timbriche e nei virtuosismi strumentali.
