Claire Ritter: The Stream of Pearls Project

Read "The Stream of Pearls Project" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Disco decisamente piano-centrico questo The Stream of Pearls Project di Claire Ritter. Perché nonostante in buona parte dei diciotto brani compaiano a turno violoncello, fisarmonica, percussioni, vibrafono e banjo il protagonista assoluto resta il pianoforte. In barba alle più elementari norme sull'interplay in questa incisione il resto degli strumenti funge da sparring partner, da fondale più ...

Read "The Streams Of Pearls Project" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Claire Ritter's tenth album, The Stream Of Pearls Project, is inspired by water.

Read "Waltzing The Splendor" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Pianist/composer Claire Ritter's expansive artistic vision comes into sharp focus on her ninth CD release, Waltzing the Splendor. It's music that won't slip into a neat category, though “classical jazz"--if you must apply a label--might be as good a fit as you'll find for her highly melodic approach.

Claire Ritter: Greener Than Blue

Read "Greener Than Blue" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan

Dichotomy prevails on pianist Claire Ritter's Greener Than Blue --rhythmic blues motifs versus peaceful impressionism; rags vs. tone poems; alternating west and east atmospherics; the rent party vying with the parlor. And still it holds together, thanks to the music's spare beauty and Ritter's always interesting melodic vision.Ritter delivers here on solo piano and ...
