Straightahead / Mainstream Jazz
premiera polska: 2023-10-27
opakowanie: Gatefoldowe etui
With several Origin releases featuring mainstream heavyweights, young up-and-comers, and chordless trio explorations with his Trio East and Triocity groups, drummer Rich Thompson has covered vast musical ground. Here, Thompson teams with his bandmate from trumpeter Byron Stripling's band, pianist/organist Bobby Floyd, guitarist Corey Christiansen and bassist Peter Chwazik for an organic, grooving session covering originals, seldom heard classics such as Sonny Rollins' "Why Don't I," and John Scofield's "Gray & Visceral," to new takes on three beloved standards including "A Flower is a Lovesome Thing."
...full of delightful group dynamics and individual virtuosity. Thompson leads his quartet with a relaxed confidence and impeccable dexterity...
