About the Album

What The Critics Say: ARTIST: TONY PACINI ALBUM / CD: "Tony Pacini Trio - Live At Jimmy Mak's" "This is the album Tony's fans just knew would come along sooner or later. And let's hope there are "more from where this came from," so to speak. You see, this album gives Tony's ever-swinging trio (Ed Bennett, bass and Tim Rap, drums) an opportunity to record live before an attentive, enthusiastic audience. It also was an occasion upon which Tony had the privilege of playing a top of the line Yamaha, a piano valued at more than I paid for my first two houses! Given these plusses, Tony and his pals were at the top of their game, and having been in his audience that night, I can attest to that. It doesn't hurt at all that Tony chooses such evergreens as "Freddie Freeloader", "Stompin' At The Savoy", a funky "Love For Sale" and the rarely heard "Brotherhood Of Man", all from the upbeat list. To these, add gorgeous renditions of Percy Faith's "Maybe September" and Thad Jones' tender "A Child Is Born", both on the ballad side of things. Two expressive Pacini originals illustrate Tony's facility for writing attractive and cohesive melody lines, "Beyond The Veil" and "First Light". Tony Pacini has grown in all facets of his music in recent years. He's getting more gigs and with his plentiful musical gifts strongly surfacing, deserves them. Catch him at Jimmy Mak's or Wilf's Restaurant (Portland, OR), sometime soon. He's something special!" -George Fendel, Jazzscene Magazine

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
