TRP (The Reese Project)
Rhombus, 2011, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: TRP is The Reese Project featuring Tom Reese (fl), Laurie Haines Reese (cello), Kirk Reese (p) and drummer Dave Young. This is their 9th CD and the first on Rhombus Records. It is a blend of straight-ahead tracks mixed with jazzed up folk tunes including a few originals by Tom notably the swinging “Blues For Ruthie” and “Olivette”. Other highlights are the mysterious “Serenade to a Cuckoo”, and warm covers of “Softly as in a Morning Sunrise” and “Footsteps”. TRP remains a vibrant force.
