Product Description

Amazon.com

New York-born pianist Rachel Nicolazzo, nicknamed Rachel Z, is one of the more musically open-minded "young lions" to have emerged from the 1990s. Besides making her own eclectic recordings, she has worked with a variety of artists from Steps Ahead to Wayne Shorter. This project is her heartfelt tribute to Joni Mitchell and follows her previous recording of Shorter's compositions (a logical choice because Mitchell often worked with Shorter). Backed by drummer Bobbie Rae and Canadian bassist Patricia Deslauriers, Rachel extends and elaborates on the sophisticated harmonies and visual poetry of Mitchell's music. Although the overall sound of the trio evokes some of the pastoral vibes of Keith Jarrett's '70s ECM recordings, it's the Herbie Hancock-influenced piano lines and Shorter-styled imagination that provide the stylistic fuel for these rhythmic and revealing reinterpretations. On "Help Me," "Ladies Man," and "All I Want," Z weaves in some sly Bill Evans and Charlie Parker rhythmic changes and chords. The title track bops with harmonic hints of John Coltrane's "Giant Steps," while "Free Man in Paris" is redone with a Latin lilt. Rachel Z understands that the beauty of Joni Mitchell's music is its ability to communicate, and nothing demonstrates this more than her hymnlike reading of "Both Sides Now," where Ms. Z makes the piano sing in Mitchell's moody and moving voice. --Eugene Holley Jr.

Rachel largely preserves the melodies and tempos of the original tunes, so you'll actually recognize them, but she extends the harmony and rhythm considerably. I'm out of adjectives: lively as hell, joyous, thrilling, brilliant, direct, and free. She has paid some dues to play like that. This CD is amazing.

Outstanding music from a great pianist.Joni Mitchell's music is played with interesting takes on her bigger hits of the past.I saw Rachel Z play in person many years ago and I was impressed by her playing of not only the piano but also her versatility on various synthesizers to boot.Check this cd out if you can and also the impressive amount of side work she has done with other artists.
