Glenn Astarita By

Pianist Dave Burrell has performed with saxophonists; Archie Shepp, David Murray and in 1979, recorded a widely acclaimed jazz-opera, titled Windward Passages, as the artist is equally at home whether performing modern/free jazz or when adhering to traditionalism. Thus, Burrell is a well-balanced musician who often injects his deeply personalized methodology into a palate that often consists of quirky motifs and subtle deviations from the tried and true

Brown, a longtime veteran of drummer Max Roach’s quartet, nicely compliments Burrell’s simply stated elegance on standards such as “Never Let Me Go” and “Blue Moon, via his sprightly patterns and contrasting lyricism. The bassist’s tribute to Max Roach, titled “Dear Mr. Roach” is all about mid-tempo Bop-ish statements and Thelonious Monk-style rhythmic developments. Burrell’s animated block chords and quasi-stride piano approach to the Duke’s “Caravan,” provides a disparate glimpse to a piece that has been rehashed into oblivion. Therefore, Recital looms as one of the more pleasurable piano-bass pairings in recent years. Recommended.
