Bill Cunliffe - The Blues and The Abstract Truth, Take 2
With his new album, The Blues and the Abstract Truth, Take 2
, pianist Bill Cunliffe doesn't so much reinvent a modern jazz classic as open it for incisive interpretation. Working with clean, uncluttered arrangements and a stellar cast of improvisers, Cunliffe explores Oliver Nelson's beloved 1961 album for Impulse!
"Finest disc released this year."
