Description

Violin virtuoso Zach Brock's third session is - like its predecessors, 'Almost Never Was' and 'Purple Sounds' - a tour de force of modern swing expression.

Joined by New York A-listers Aaron Goldberg (piano), Matt Penman (bass) and Obed Calvaire (drums), Brock addresses a stylistically varied program, showcasing his command of a broad timeline of violin styles that he refracts into his own individualistic argot. The repertoire includes Jean-Luc Ponty (Sunday Walk), Charlie Parker (Segment), the American Songbook (the Leonard Bernstein ballad Some Other Time), and several substantial originals.

"The music world surely does not lack for jazz fiddlers who mistake schmaltz for expression, melodic ornamentation for real improvisation and ostentatious display for commanding technique. But Brock, a former Chicagoan who lives in New York, represents the polar opposite of all this, and always has." - Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Personnel: Zach Brock (violin, baritone violin), Aaron Goldberg (piano), Matt Penman (bass), Obed Calvaire (drums)
