Astrid Cowan: Swing Team

Read "Swing Team" reviewed by Jack Bowers


I hope Astrid Cowan will forgive me for saying she plays piano like a man. The truth is, she does, employing a percussive, two–fisted approach that reminds one of McCoy Tyner, the late Gene Harris, Benny Green and other fiery, blues–based modernists.
