Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2006-02-19 
Mainstream jazz, a robust piano trio with a rich '60s sound. Some tracks add synth soundbeds that I could do without (3,5). Nothing too groundbreaking here, but Keezer's soloing packs plenty of fireworks, and his set includes some interesting ideas.

1- Quick and sly, with a loose, exciting structure. Cool drum solo.
2- Fairly quiet, w/flashy piano solo
3- Slow, lovely, quite sappy
4- Fast and gutsy
5- Slow funk, a Bjork cover. Rhodes piano adds atmosphere that's either innovative or cheesy, can't decide which.
6- Soft, midtempo. Fancy fingerwork on piano solo
7- Duke Ellington's "Black & Tan," a sly swing. The early piano solo is played on left hand with a running trickle of high notes from the right -- not that difficult, probably, but sounds cool.
8- Gentle mid/fast. Interesting, simple rhythm in the theme.
9- Crisp straight jazz with dextrous piano parts. Bass solo. Long applause at the end.
