Artist/Band:Kiyoshi Kitagawa Trio
Cat No.:AS-042
Performed by:Kiyoshi Kitagawa (bass)
Kenny Barron (piano)
Brian Blade (drums)
Release Date:09/25/2004
Description:Japanese bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa's first leader album from Atelier Sawano, recorded in 2003 in New York, is a smashingly attractive, straight-ahead trio date. His frequent employer and one of the greatest pianists operating today, Kenny Barron lends more than just a helping hand. Combine this powerhouse with Brian Blade, one of the most talented, sharp drummers of our time, and you get an explosive trio for whom ANYTHING is possible.

But Kitagawa and his pals decided to go really straight-ahead. No gimmicks. No tricks. Just wonderful playing. And this is clearly NOT the Kenny Barron Trio in a different name. Kitagawa's leadership is apparent in his compositions (he supplied all four originals) and the fact he sometimes plays the first melody and lead the way.

At first listen this album may appear somewhat subtle, but that is because none of the musicians is inclined to selfishly show off his techniques for his own sake. Repeated listening reveals that they are interacting at a very high level, and even without fireworks, their playing is truly amazing. This is also a very well-recorded disc, so play it loud and enjoy the sonics!
