Jazz, Neo-Bop, Post-Bop | Label: Criss Cross Jazz

On Hazeltine's second quintet session for Criss Cross, he takes on the challenge of writing for the contrasting textures of the trombone-alto saxophone front line - Steve Davis & Jim Snidero - a pairing virtually without precedent in the jazz canon. Propelled by bassist Nat Reeves & drummer Tony Reedus, the date swings madly, while David contributes the beautiful color-voicings & lucid, cool-fire improvising we've been accustomed to. Features Dutch guitar great Jesse Van Ruller, winner of the Thelonius Monk Competition.

Pianist David Hazeltine's previous albums have elicited comparisons to Oscar Peterson and Cedar Walton. But those whose first exposure to his playing is this trio recording for the Dutch Criss Cross label might walk away thinking more in terms of Bill Evans; for the most part, Hazeltine's playing here is elegantly restrained and quietly romantic, despite a noticeable undercurrent of intense emotion.

David Hazeltine is known for his harmonic sophistication and elegant pianism, traits that were also hallmarks of Cedar Walton s playing. When Hazeltine initially set out make what would become his Smoke Sessions release, For All We Know, making a tribute record was the furthest thing from his mind and it should be pointed out that For All We Know is definitely not a tribute record. Yet, it s hard to ignore the importance of Cedar Walton s legacy to it. Hazeltine is one of the important heirs to Walton s piano tradition, so it is only natural that his gratitude and affection would be dominant themes on this recording. It is also a special record because it documents what is essentially the first collaboration between Hazeltine and tenor saxophonist Seamus Blake.
