Editorial Reviews

Three Musicians is NY-based pianist/composer, Joan Stiles' 3rd CD, a joyful, interactive outing with Joel Frahm (sax) and Matt Wilson (drums). The trio glides and grooves through various jazz styles in brilliant but accessible explorations of standards, show tunes, Monk, Strayhorn, Mary Lou Williams, and even some Beatles and Clapton. Highlights include collages on LOVE - My Funny Valentine meets Sunshine of Your Love and MONEY - Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? meets Can't Buy Me Love. Stiles' compositions - West End Boogie, a soulful, rhythmic blues, and the Gillespie/Dameron inspired Bebopicity add to the eclectic mix. Hurly-Burly (Stiles' last CD) garnered a 4-star Downbeat review and topped Jazz Week Radio charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fearless jazz improv in an unusual jazz trio December 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Three Musicians

Fearless jazz improv in an unusual jazz trio that nevertheless displays a pleasing and harmonic set. By the way, that's a Picasso inspired collage on the cover, and the titles here draw their inspiration from the cubist masterpiece, "Three Musicians seen below left. Stiles does more than get around the piano with a playful virtuosity, she did the collage too. The cubist theme becomes apparent very soon after putting this one in the CD player.

The trio consists of saxophonist, Joel Frahm and drummer, Matt Wilson with Stiles covering all 88 keys and leaving a bass player out of work. And that is much to the chagrin of the second tracks co-writer (half-writer?) Jack Bruce, bass player for the psychedelic band, Cream. I say half-writer because the track is called "In The Sunshine Of My Funny Valentines Love". You can probably figure it out for yourself, but it is a `mashup' of Bruce's signature Cream tune and Richard Rogers `My Funny Valentine' and just to keep things interesting, there's a Bach Fugue in there somewhere too.

Did I mention Stiles has a sharp (pun intended) sense of humor and an ardent playfulness? The amazing thing here, is despite the lack of a bass player that Stiles has the chops to cover the bass on the piano without sacrificing the harmonic and rhythmic duties one would expect. Another similar tune is "Brother Can You Spare A Dime/Can't Buy Me Love" This mix of he old with the comparative modern makes for a captivating ear candy.

Even when the song isn't such an obvious blend of tunes, Stiles still injects spontaneous little ideas into the tunes.
