Lynne Arriale Trio: Give Us These Days

Read "Give Us These Days" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

When it comes to the art of the trio, pianist Lynne Arriale is always in her element. Over the past quarter century she's released two riveting handfuls of dates exploring this configuration, only rarely moving afield as on her plainly-titled previous release--Solo (Motema, 2012).

Lynne Arriale Trio: Live At the Montreux Jazz Festival

Read "Live At the Montreux Jazz Festival" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Acid Impressionism. Classically trained pianist Lynne Arriale follows up Melody (TCB 99552) with an equally fine live recording, her first. Live At the Montreux Jazz Festival shimmers with wall-to-wall orchestral playing. The music here is full-bodied with a plush base provided by Arriale's smart pedal work. “Alone Together" swirls, while the two Monk tunes become her ...
