Paul Joseph, drums; Michael Bartolomei, Piano;
Brendan Clarke, double bass
You've heard the phrase "straight ahead," well, this is it, my kind of music. This offering is made up ten standards and one original, "Mal's Groove" by Paul Joseph.
As a trio from the land "Down Under," Australia , this is a very tight group and each player gets to shine. You can hear the Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans influence in the music. Paul Joseph stated that they influenced him "from as far back as I can remember."
There is nothing pretentious about this group,
just clean, crisp and sometimes rollicking music.
I am happy to have it in Jazz Now Direct mail order catalog.
