This is a great album. I listen to it every night while I go to bed. It is worth buying!

Raleigh News & Observer review of Smile by Owen Cordle - May 2006

'Smile' (Summit Music Publishing), pianist Gary Brunotte's fourth CD, recalls the delicate, harmonically spellbinding touch of the Bill Evans Trio. Working with drummer Bill Berg and bassist Steve Haines or Rick Jones, Brunotte offers 14 concise performances, each one just enough for the group to make a memorable statement and move on. It beats marathon soloing any day. Brunotte, who moved to North Carolina in 1997 and lives in Durham, has refined his style through attending and then teaching at Berklee College of Music, a stint at Rodney Dangerfield's comedy club in Manhattan and numerous gigs in New York's Hudson Valley area. Haines, who teaches at UNC-Greensboro (and who performs on the majority of the tracks), combines power with lyricism and nimble high-register work. Jones is equally dexterous and tasteful. Berg's accompaniment, fills and solos are measured and beautifully recorded. Brunotte composed 10 of the album's tunes. If you dig a romantic approach to harmony, his "Ditty for the Kitty," "Wood Lake," "In the Night" and "Classicat" fill the bill handsomely. Vocalist Kirsten Lambert joins the group on Charlie Chaplin's title tune -- there is also an instrumental version -- and Antonio Carlos Jobim's "Triste." Brunotte's "Blue-Point Blues" is the most dapper example of jazz-rock you're likely to hear anywhere. Brunotte adds accordion on a couple of performances, a reminder of the instrument he started on growing up in Minnesota.
