Peter Zak "Standards" (SCCD 31815)

SCCD 31815 Peter Zak “Standards”

Peter Zak presents himself here as a pianist in his inherently natural format of a piano trio performing “Standard” tunes.

Michael Bailey of AAJ commented on Zak’s previous release The Disciple SCCD 31771 that “… The smarter artists, like Zak, add a program or theme to their recordings, something that gives an otherwise disparate collection of pieces some continuity or integrity.”

The program or theme on this album is the standards interpreted and performed for here and now in order to give them a lasting life.
