Where technology meets art
Frank Strazzeri, That's Him, 1/29 March 1969 -- Los Angeles, California
Lets get right to the point of this performance: This is one of the finest piano trio outings ever recorded. This is a bold statement indeed, but in this case true. Repeated listening (over 25 times) has revealed this as a true jazz masterpiece of harmonic nuance and brilliance. Frank needs no introduction nor a listing of his accomplishments as a pianist. He has transformed his many influences (Bud Powell, Horace Silver, Hank Jones, etc.) into an impeccable, concise, brilliant style. And while manifesting a crisp and and bright sound, you won’t find one cliché in Frank’s playing. Recorded in 1969 on a vintage Scully 4-track tape deck, this piano trio session is classic studio sound and wholly complementary to the playing.
