Nocturne, 2007

MAINSTREAM/WORLD-JAZZ – Winner of the 2006 Thelonious Monk piano competition, this 20-year old Armenian-American pianist teams up with French players Louis & François Moutin for an engaging modern set that’s full of vibrant energy and sweeping solo flights.

All good. Fo’s Picks: 1, 3, 4, 5, 7, 10

1. 7:49 – vocal percussion, stabbing theme, quick-paced solos
2. 5:50 – electro-acoustic tune based on repeated phrase, traces of hip-hop
3. 5:04 – melancholy ballad, very pretty with a gentle sway
4. 11:53 – Armenian folkdance in odd meters, aggressive theme, rolling solos
5. 4:21 – T. Monk tune staggers along with a quasi-reggae beat
6. 7:56 – tranquil solo intro, then an odd blend of retro-soul and speedy bop
7. 9:49 – carnival organ leads into spinning gypsy tune; lengthy piano solo
8. 10:05 – Armenian folksong; starts quiet, builds up and crashes, cool solos
9. 8:22 – Miles Davis tune with the rhythm twisted up, rolling solos
10. 6:27 – dark, mysterious piano leads into gentle melody over quick pulse
