Funky, stomping pieces from a Baltimore-based pianist. Big and brash, with simple midtempo horn lines over some clever piano noodling. It’s not fast stuff, but it’s got energy, attitude, and volume – every track is good, albeit repetitious and even a bit robotic.|
Gilchrest’s playing is meaty and nimble, dense with clever ideas – see the solo on #8, for instance. This disc is all inside stuff, but Gilchrest has also played with Baltimore’s free-improv crowd doing abstract, experimental music.
1- Midtempo and bright
2- Brash; drunkenly swaying.
3- Midtempo. More sparse, but still has attitude.
4- Chattery horn theme;
6- Evil, braying groove.
7- Midtempo. A calmer, cool-down sound.
8- Mid/fast, with a snappy piano riff and a great piano solo
