KONRAD PASZKUDZKI TRIO FASCINATING RHYTHM GEORGE GERSHWIN SONG BOOK 180G
George Gershwin Song Book on 180g Vinyl LP!
The focus is on standards — tunes collectively known as The Great American Song Book. Without imposing trite gimmicks or relying on overt displays of flash and technical wizardry, the trio stays true to the original musical and lyrical content of the material, with an emphasis on melodic elegance and swinging verve. The influence of Nelson Riddle, Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and Ahmad Jamal can be felt and heard, but is never blatantly mimicked.
Direct, simple, yet intriguing, they improvise solo narratives with toe-tapping nonchalant grace. There is something humble in this approach, but the attitude with which the music is delivered is one of confident passion. The message it carries comes across in pristine fashion-the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio leads the way in today's world of swinging, sophisticated jazz.
