MAXJAZZ, 2004, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Mulgrew Miller is one of the most sought after pianists on today’s jazz scene. He put together a trio with Derrick Hodge (b) and Karriem Riggins (d) and the headed to Yoshi’s in San Francisco. This is a great place for jazz, where the audience appreciates the musicians and encourages the performance. The environment was optimum for this live session and each of the players brought their A game led by Miller who tickled the ivories with dazzling arrangements as well as grace. The arrangements are all new and very palatable. It will make you wish you were there.
