If you're familiar with All About Jazz, you know that we've dedicated over two decades to supporting jazz as an art form, and more importantly, the creative musicians who make it. Our enduring commitment has made All About Jazz one of the most culturally important websites of its kind in the world reaching hundreds of thousands of readers every month. However, to expand our offerings and develop new means to foster jazz discovery we need your help.
You can become a sustaining member for a modest $20 and in return, we'll immediately hide those pesky Google ads PLUS deliver exclusive content and provide access to future articles for a full year! This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...
From the up tempo "Accents" to the Haunting "Ruth" this disc is a fine showcase for these talented artists..Perkins exhibits his mystical side and his bop persona with equal grace. Bill Perkins continues to play at a level that has brought him world wide acclaim. He is a legend in the true sense.
Danny Pucillo is a musician that this writer has always admired. His tasteful percussion work is a case study for aspiring Drummers. This CD certainly spotlights his artistry in fine fashion.
Guitarist Ozaki is chosen well. A Pianoless group had better have a Guitar Player that can carry the load....And he accomplishes this with such ease and melodic phrasing that the Piano is not missed at all.
Chris Colangelo is very much in demand as a Bassist and listening to him on this recording it becomes apparent why he is included in the top jazz groups on the music scene...Time is of the essence and he provides it, along with swinging solos that are well thought out and lyrically tasty.
Great CD for any jazz collection...
