Carlberg, Frank & Noah Preminger
Red Piano Records, 2018, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Tenor saxophonist Noah Preminger and pianist Frank Carlberg are like-minded in their improvisational approach. Both seek to play pure tones and rich harmonies centered on classic tunes. They achieve that on“Whispers and Cries, a collection of ten popular tunes recast in fresh, unique arrangements with lots of improvisation but with recognizable cores. They feed off of each other and are in no hurry. It was fun trying to guess the tunes before they uncovered the melodies. It’s a warm set for a lazy afternoon, suitable for a variety of activities, engaging or in the background.
