FALKNER EVANS

Arc

2007-12-29

Jazz pianist Falkner Evans and his trio return on their third effort, ARC, to offer some fresh voices to jazz standards and express virtuosity on new original tracks in this fine recording. Featured alongside bassist Belden Bullock and drummer Matt Wilson, the trios grasp of classic and modal jazz is exemplified on new arrangements of John Coltrane's "Central Park West" and the Wayne Shorter tune, "Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum." The trio expresses their penchant for a tight working group in the Evan's original "Make Tracks, Child" that is interlaced with musical references to Thelonious Monk's "Straight No Chaser." This new album is a great collection and is both accessible and intricate. A fine contribution! - Daniel J. Graeber
