Eva Novoa: Novoa / Gress / Gray Trio, Vol. 1

Read "Novoa / Gress / Gray Trio, Vol. 1" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

A vivid sense of drama and its intrinsic, minute shadings of light upon dark places animate pianistEva Novoa's work. Barcelona bred and keening with Brooklyn bravura, Novoa swaps the fore and backgrounds with uncompromised glee. Expressionistic, Impressionistic, and forthright, she aligns and upsets the edges to her liking. That, along with the crackling, crosstown chi of ...
