Fiona's Comments

Galper has a singular sound, one that is simultaneously challenging and a fun listen. One of those artists who should have at least one album represented in each person's music library.

About the Album

Following up on what's been called the veteran pianist's finest recording to date, 2011's Trip the Light Fantastic, Galper and his trio offer another exhilarating set of music, further defining the very personal "rubato" style of collective performance they've developed over the last six years. Galper, bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop display a singular group aesthetic, fully grounded in the language of bop while always in pursuit of new possibilities. The track "One Step Closer" is the latest original composition based on Galper's research into Brazilian harmony.

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.
