Rich Perry “Mood” (SCCD 31830)

SCCD 31830 Rich Perry “Mood”

“Mood” deciphers “ballads” here in this Rich Perry new album, which is, to quote the liner notes author Neil Tesser, “.. all ballads, all handled with skill and taste, yet all pushing at the edges to find something else.”

“The SteepleChase sessions… constitute a body of work equal to anyone currently in the jazz mainstream. Perry’s editing, shifts in tone and phrasing, and embellishments of songs like “Gone With The Wind” on Gone (SCCD 31670) evince a genuine appreciation of the melodies, as well as a desire to make his own way through them.”
(David A Orthmann-AAJ)
