Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

LARRY GOLDINGS

In My Room

2011-08-10

Jazz pianist Larry Goldings has put together a soothing set of solo pieces that surprise and get you listening thoughtfully--from the opener and title track from Brian Wilson, to the American classics "Beautiful Dreamer" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," to Joni Mitchell's "All I Want" and finally to Paul McCartney's "Here, There and Everywhere." In-between, Goldings has inserted his own compositions and the set holds together nicely. It seems rare to hear the piano unadorned these days. And, once in a while, when someone plays as well as Goldings, it is nice to hear the instrument without clutter. 08/11 Michael J.
