Joyce DiCamillo and her working trio wax another provocative collection of standards from over the rainbow.
Piano trio discs are nice in that the listener is treated to stripped-down, atomic versions of standards where they might see the skeleton of a classic tune. Joyce DiCamillo and her trio give airy, orchestral readings of a series of standards as different as "You And The Night And The Music" and "Moanin'". On Oliver Nelson's "Stolen Moments", DiCamillo woos the melody with block chords and Rick Petrone teases out an almost Flamenco character during his double bass solo. "Sunrise Lady" features a spirited introduction from drummer Joe Corsello that gives way to a Latinfest of piano. "I'm A Fool to Want You" is given an almost Bossa feel with Corsello's light Tom work. "Moanin'" is taken at a fist clip, cleverly quoting Miles' "So What" in the head. DiCamillo burns on this Timmons jewel, making this outing more than worth the effort to find.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
