The Evenfall Quartet
Label: Blue Duchess Records
This instrumental collection of standards will probably stay in my CD player for quite awhile. I am already looking forward to listening to it again. It’s a completely satisfying collection of classics, including “Time After Time,” “The Shadow Of Your Smile,” “After You’re Gone,” “How Insensitive,” “That Old Black Magic,” and “Stardust.”
The key to this album’s success is that it captures the spontaneity of a live performance. For the recording, the band laid down all the tracks in a single day. The natural jazz reflexes convey each spur-of-the-moment decision and each member of the quartet shines through the shared experience.
The Evenfall Quartet is Brad Hallen (bass), Mark Earley (saxophone), Joe “Sonny” Barbara (piano) and Jerzy “Jurek” Glod (drums).
