Audio CD, June 7, 1998
The new 11-song disc is a fine set of subtle, expertly rendered instrumental jazz classics from the likes of Coltrane, Monk, Davis and others.
From the Label
It's pretty cool. Coy's jazz box is at no loss for expression as he unleashes streams of notes and chords with an ease belying solid chops. His influences are there -- Wes Montgomery, maybe Grant Green -- but with so many diverse gigs under his belt, Coy's individual style has absorbed elements from innumerable idioms. Same goes for Webb and Fallat. Combine the three and this jazz jells into a highly listenable style which never really affronts the senses with an emotion other than sheer joy.
Obviously, these players are very familiar with and relish each other's company. Refreshing to see musicians playing jazz with amused expressions rather than the more accepted, this-is-serious-so-listen-closely contorted look. Midway through the second set, the trio tones down for a very sensitive rendition of "Tenderly." Coy's excellent choice of tight voicings lend harmonic depth while Webb's full-bodied upright and Fallat's brushes compliment to the nth.See all Editorial Reviews
