Criss Cross Jazz 1296 CD

Peter Beets Trio

New Groove

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.
