It’s been a very busy year and work has piled up at my desk to astronomical proportions. Thumbing through a stack of media kits I came across one from Larry Redhouse so I decided to play this particular CD and what a pleasure it was. Though I was swamped with news and reviews I had to take a time out and listen to this wonderfully articulate jazz trio “The Larry Redhouse Trio”
Contemporary Jazz at its finest is the only way I can describe his CD “Spirit Progression” fore I could not stop listening. From the first piece Spirit Progression to the last Understanding I was mesmerized and totally captivated by this wonderfully talented trio’s musical repartee. Small wonder they opened for the likes of Chick Corea, Terrence Blanchard and Donald Harrison.
Performances at the Smithsonian, The Kennedy Center, The Steinway Peace Piano Concert and the Grenoble Jazz Fest in Grenoble France are a testament this trio’s ability to captivate even the most discerning music aficionado. But don’t take my word, listen for yourself and I guarantee you will enjoy this musical journey.
