After presenting a program of gnarly originals for quartet on Ultimatum, his Criss Cross debut, pianist George Colligan offers a beautifully paced trio recital.
Mixing well-wrought originals with iconic standards like Sophistcated Lady and Body and Soul and such less-traveled repertoire as Holiday for Strings and Three Views of a Secret, Colligan again displays the musicality and personal perspective that have marked his oeuvre over the past decade.
In the rhythm section: bassist Vicente Archer, and master drummer Bill Stewart.
