Debut solo disc from Steps Ahead and session keyboardist, primarily acoustic jazz.

Some great chops, nice set of tunes, well done.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a TRULY excellent debut disc for ANY young musician . Ms. Z , essentially , made two seperate albums here . The first six songs are absolutely wonderful and chock full of superb musicians . With herself on solo piano , Ms. Z is joined by ; Charnett Moffett (acoustic bass) , David Sanchez (soprano and tenor saxaphone) , Al Foster (drums) and Gumbi Ortiz (percussion) . These songs are absolutely beautiful . Played , as you would imagine owing to the personnel , with remarkable suppleness and magnificent soloing by various players . The disc's first little gaff does begin to show , even here , though . Mr. Sanchez is , largely , relegated to playing unison lines for and with Ms. Z . A sameness of sound begins to develope owing to this decision . When we skip to the next six (excellent) songs , Ms. Z adds some keyboards in addition to her piano and the personnel change . These six songs feature ; Victor Bailey (electric bass) , David Mann (soprano , alto and tenor saxaphones) and Lennie White (drums) stepping in to join the returning Mr. Ortiz . Now , more than ever , Mr. Mann is , there again , largely relegated to playing almost entirely unison lines . The "electric" nature of the tracks (little gaff # two) coupled with those copious and recurring unison saxaphone lines mars this "acoustic" set . Not deeply enough to put off a purchase (for me) but still , more than a little annoying and disappointing . Particularly because Ms. Z is , obviouly , such a gifted and fantastic piano player . Those keyboards , on the last half dozen songs , may find you scratching your head and thinking WHY ? Lots of great music here though . Worth a reasonable investment to be sure . Ms. Z is , clearly , dealing . a mildly qualified recommendation .

Format: Audio CD
I have owned this excellent album for many years. With the exception of the Miles Davis' classic "Nardis" all of the compositions are very good Rachel Z originals. Mike Mainieri of Steps Ahead produced this, her second album, in 1993.

Rachel divides the CD into acoustic and electric/contempory sections. The acoustic tracks feature David Sanchez (sax), Charnette Moffett (bass) and Al Foster (drums). On the electric tracks Rachel plays piano and keyboards. The other musicians include David Mann (sax), Lenny White (drums)and Victor Bailey (bass). Gumbi Ortiz plays percussion in both groups.

Rachel is a superb pianist and the tunes are great, this is a very polished and enjoyable album. The CD booklet features numerous pictures of Ms. Z in glamorous poses and you have to conclude that men have it easier, nobody expects male jazz musicians to look sexy.

I have listened to this CD for so many years, I've lost track. Every time I play this, my wife asks, "did you get a new CD?" I have to laugh, but that's how fresh it still sounds. I don't like most of Rachel's stuff, honestly, but her backup players on this outing are pros and she responds in kind. Don't expect her other CD's to sound anything like this. Her current drummer, whom I think is her husband, does not do her justice and is in the way. This is the one to get.
