MARC COPLAND: Night Whispers
Pirouet, 2009

MODERN PIANO TRIO – Remarkable interaction here, in the third of pianist Copland’s excellent “New York Trio” series. This time he pairs with bassist Drew Gress, who gracefully envelops Copland’s delicate, near-tragic piano, while drummer Bill Stewart expands and contracts space in seamless elasticity. Achingly tender, strikingly different, deeply serious but utterly magnetic. This is one helluva record.

Marc Copland - piano
Drew Gress - bass
Bill Stewart - drums

* * * * * | All excellent. Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 5, 6, 7

1. 1:59 – solo piano ballad, dappled light tinged with worried dissonance
2. 8:35 – soft and sad, suspended over a pulsating quiet, lots of depth in solos
3. 7:59 – restrained uptempo tune saturated with rich, vivid harmonic colors
4. 2:51 – another version of #1, runs in quick divergent streams
5. 6:58 – Miles Davis classic, spacious, all muted tones & prismatic refraction
6. 6:42 – slow, mysterious: tiptoes carefully thru tall grass, picks up later
7. 7:06 – odd rolling groove sneaks in, scatters like dust, returns. Great drums!
8. 2:12 – another version of #1, spectral and haunting, a disturbed echo
9. 6:33 – mid/uptempo levitation with nifty dialogue, everyone has lots to say
10. 7:31 – standard, tiptoes and pirouettes, relatively straight nightclub sound
