CD Reviews

Interresting effort from Billy Hart but...............
C. Katz | Peoples Republic Of Massachussettes | 06/18/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Now I dig Billy Hart.His first LP on A&M,Evidence, with Oliver Lake, Don Pullen, Dewey Redman and Hannibal Marvin Peterson, et was great.And he is a first call sideman on drums before and since.But this 2009 release on Enja with reed man Johhanes Enders (who also get's production credits) and Martin Enkers on bass left me scratching my head as in "do I like this?".The format is fine.Piano less trio's have always appealed to me.The songs are all originals an OK rather different.But it has a feel of listening to a clinic in the side tent as opposed to a main stage or good club performance.I suppose this is one I will give some more spins but first impressions were it just didn't gel.Take a listen to clips yourself.If your a fan of John Tchichai or Odeon Pope in there less out works it may wrok (I really dug last Pope with Misled Children a chancy but great work with a hip hop group).Again a bit disappointed but worth getting a taste.I know some might think it's great but again I was disappointed.
Peace
