Leslie Pintchik: Eat, Drink, Steal

Leslie Pintchik: Eat, Drink, Steal

Sophistication is widely admired but little understood. There's no secret formula for creating something thought of as sophisticated nor are there any classes that teach it. Sophistication is simply a higher level of caring and soulfulness that comes from the heart, not the mind. Complexity is often mistaken for being sophisticated. In truth, complexity is almost ...

Leslie Pintchik: You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!

Read "You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

On this, her sixth album, pianist Leslie Pintchik shows that she can compose distinctive melodies. All of the original compositions she does on this CD are bright and memorable and even the two standards she covers are given surprising arrangements.

She establishes herself from the beginning with the uniquely-titled “You Eat My Food." This turns ...

Leslie Pintchik: You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!

Read "You Eat My Food, You Drink My Wine, You Steal My Girl!" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

If they gave out awards for album titles, this one would surely be in the running for top honors. “You eat my food, you drink my wine, you steal my girl" is a harsh and odd phrase that rolls off the tongue like some sort of backwoods country accusation-turned-lament, but its origins are far more urban ...

Leslie Pintchik: True North

Read "True North" reviewed by Luigi Sforza

Nella musica della pianista Leslie Pintchik non vi è alcuna traccia di rottura con la tradizione classica del jazz, tutt'altro. La presenza marcata di paradigmi noti privilegia l'interesse per un modello espressivo che nelle forme chiuse, siano esse blues o A-A-B-A ("Falling in Love Again"), trova il principio originario, la cornice all'interno della quale prendono corpo--sotto ...

Leslie Pintchik: True North

Read "True North" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Leslie Pintchik's music has a magical draw to it. Perhaps it has to do with her pearly and softly pronounced piano work, at once circuitous and direct in the way it shapes and navigates expressive pathways. Or maybe it has to do with her compositional acumen. Her pieces, after all, have a way of registering and ...

Leslie Pintchik: In the Nature of Things

Read "In the Nature of Things" reviewed by Maurizio Zerbo

Ancora una volta la pianista statunitense si impone con lucida ed inventiva cifra stilistica. Il suo sestetto non si adagia sulla lezione post-boppistica in stile Blue Note, con il consueto sound rovente ed incalzante. La Pintchik agisce sapientemente sulla tensione interna delle sue composizioni originali, imprimendo anche ai ritmi più sostenuti una raffinata sensibilità melodica. Quanto ...
