Hal Galper Trio -][- AIREGIN REVISITED – [Origin Records, 2012]
Following up on what’s been called the veteran pianist’s finest recording to date, 2011’s “Trip the Light Fantastic,” Galper and his trio offer another exhilarating set of music, further defining the very personal “rubato” style of collective performance they’ve developed over the last six years.
From an intimate “Embraceable You,” to the closing, high-flying take of Sonny Rollins’ “Airegin,” Galper, bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop, display a singular group aesthetic, fully grounded in the language of bop while always in pursuit of new possibilities.
Produced by Hal Galper, Jeff Johnson & John Bishop
