Peter Madsen's CIA Trio: 88 Butterfly

Read "88 Butterfly" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic


Veteran pianist & composer Peter Madsen, despite having accompanied or mentored such leading lights and legends as Chris Potter, Maria Schneider, Ravi Coltrane, Stan Getz, Roy Hargrove and Benny Golson, seems to prefer a career flying under the proverbial radar.

Based on pianist/composer/bandleader Peter Madsen's extensive CV: Stan Getz, Stanley Turrentine, Dewey Redman, Benny Golson, Don Cherry, Kenny Garrett, Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman, Ravi Coltrane, Maceo Parker, Bill Frisell, John Abercombie and the Mingus Big Band, it's not surprising and often brilliant that on his eighth release for Playscape, Madsen exhibits a nearly prog-rock, anything goes ...

Peter Madsen: Never Bet The Devil Your Head

Read "Never Bet The Devil Your Head" reviewed by Don Phipps


An album like Never Bet The Devil Your Head is meant for one thing--to get inside your head! And it succeeds admirably.
