Fiona's Comments

Koonse and Friesen reminiscent of the gentility of Metheny and Haden; this tune with intense keys.

About the Album

David Friesen has long been a first-rate “talent scout.” Having introduced Uwe Kropinski, Randy Porter, and Alan Jones, on "Where The Light Falls", he brings together pianist Greg Goebel and drummer Charlie Doggett, in the company of veteran guitarist Larry Koonse. Disc One begins with “Playground”: a joyous, frisky, appropriate “recess” piece, the tune filled with melodic invention, first-rate unison work, and lively charm.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
