Review by Scott Yanow The great stride pianist Ralph Sutton was in Europe when he recorded this live concert with Dutch drummer Ted Easton’s quintet. The repertoire is mostly filled with Dixieland and New Orleans warhorses (the exceptions are Benny Carter’s “Blues in My Heart,” “Sunshine of Love,” and “Emaline”), but the musicians make the music sound fresh and generally ...

Review by Matt Collar From jazz-influenced classical pieces to world music rhythms and American popular song, pianist Monty Alexander seems to cover all his musical interests on Impressions in Blue. Backed by the talented rhythm section of bassist Hassan J.J. Wiggins Shakur and drummer Mark Taylor, Alexander tackles such epic compositions as Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue” and Rodrigo’s “En Aranjuez ...

Biography by Scott Yanow Monty Alexander long ago combined together the influence of Oscar Peterson with the soul of Gene Harris and Nat “King” Cole to form his own appealing and personable style.

Review by Ken Dryden Michel Petrucciani always excelled in front of a live audience, and this 1992 concert with his father Tony accompanying him on guitar is no exception, though it’s a shame it wasn’t released until 2001, some two years after the pianist’s death. An adventurous exploration of “Summertime” serves as a strong opener, followed by the playful waltz ...
