Tomas Janzon / Essiet Essiet / Chuck McPherson (S/USA)

Tomas Janzon: guitar
Essiet Essiet: bass
Chuck McPherson: drums

Im P&B-Folder ist Albert 'Tootie' Heath am Schlagzeug angekündigt, der gesundheitsbedingt aber seine Teilnahme an der Tour absagen muss. Er wird kompetent durch Chuck McPherson ersetzt. Ich bitte um Verständnis! CH

On Experiences, Stockholm-born, New York-based guitarist Tomas Janzon plays tasty renditions of jazz standards with drummer Albert „Tootie“ Heath, bassist Jeff Littleton and pianist Art Hillery. He stakes out some original territory with unaccompanied guitar intro to „Here’s That Rainy Day“, then plays smooth, Wes-like octaves on the poignant Jimmy Van Heusen number. Janzon acquits himself with warm-toned swing on Montgomery’s Full House and Charlie Parker’s Billie’s Bounce, then digs into Bobby Timmons’ Moanin and Jimmy Smith’s Messin’ Around with soulful authority. He also offers graceful solo renditions of two Swedish folk songs. (Bill Milkowski, Jazz Times)
