Criss Cross Jazz 1296 CD
Peter Beets Trio
Available: September 18, 2007
Peter Beets' fourth Criss Cross release
features the pianist at the helm of a piano, guitar and bass trio.
This novel configuration produces a rhythmically diverse take on American
Popular Songbook favorites, jazz standards, and Beets' original compositions.
The disc's eleven tracks encompass relaxed pre-bop swing, modern up-tempo
excursions, and sensitive balladry.
Bassists Reuben Rogers and Ruud Jacobs,
and guitarists Joe Cohn and Martijn van Iterson,
excel as accompanists and soloists.
Beets consistently plays on a level that earns him a place in the upper echelon
of young pianists.
