FRESH SOUND RECORDS RELEASES BLACKOUT CONCEPTION, JAZZ PIANIST/COMPOSER JOHN CHIN’S DEBUT ALBUM *Acoustic post-bop recording features Mark Turner on tenor sax, Alexis Cuadrado or Chris Higgins on upright bass and Bill Campbell on drums* Fresh Sound/New Talent Records announces the January 15, 2008 release of John Chin’s debut album, Blackout Conception, a highly melodic effort that underscores the Brooklyn resident’s talents as not only an acoustic pianist, but also, as a producer (Chin produced Blackout Conception with bassist Alexis Cuadrado), group leader and composer. Three of the seven tracks on Blackout Conception are Chin originals: the dusky title track, the melancholy “I Won’t Argue with You” and the contemplative “After Crash.” Other highlights of the album, which illustrates the warm and lyrical nature of Chin’s pianism, include the improviser’s thoughtful interpretations of Leonard Bernstein’s “Some Other Time,” Billy Strayhorn’s “Passion Flower” and two pieces by veteran pianist Kenny Barron: “Lullaby” and “Joanne Julia.” Jordi Pujol, president of Barcelona-based Fresh Sound, serves as Blackout Conception’s executive producer. One of Chin’s strongest pianistic influences on Blackout Conception is his mentor Barron, who he studied with extensively at Rutgers University in New Jersey

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
