O’s Notes: Pianist Joe Gilman created Americanvas with inspiration from some of America’s best painters. His musical interpretation of visual art is exceptional. He employs a strong team including Adam Arruda (d), Chad Lefkowitz-Brown (sax) and Zachary Brown (b). They open with “Gossip”, a cooker with Joe and Chad displaying amazing dexterity. They also shine on ballads like “Nighthawks”. Take the time to read the liner notes and pair the paintings with the music. It is a beautiful translation.
