Album Review

For this enjoyable disc, pianist Fred Hersch (along with bassist Drew Gress and drummer Tom Rainey) creates inventive versions of a dozen songs by 11 jazz composers (including Hersch's tribute to Bill Evans, "Evanessence"). Whether it be "Milestones," "Con Alma," "Moment's Notice," or a pair of Thelonious Monk tunes, Hersch and his trio are heard in top form, and they sound particularly inspired by the superior material.

This trio produces a mood and sound that compares very well to the original music and the selection of songs chosen are all jazz classics.
