Studio N, 2013, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Pianist David Arnay takes an unusual approach on 8 performing eight selections and adding an additional musician with each track. He starts out with a solo cover of “Caravan” and ends with a brassy octet playing “Dream Groove” one of six originals. Peter Erskine (d) comes in on track 3, Doug Webb (sax) on “Step Four” and percussionist Munyungo Jackson adds color for the last four selections. The sound gets bigger with more complexity each step of the way allowing David to lead from 8 angles! This is a novel approach that yields a very good recording.
