Description

'Convergence' from acclaimed pianist Lynne Arriale, "the most interesting - and underrated - jazz pianist around" (The Sunday Times), is an eloquent work of power and strength featuring her band of young lions.

Arriale tackles 'Convergence' with typical adroitness, agility and finesse, taking on not only the challenges of a new band, but a repertoire of six memorable originals and five unexpected pop tunes, ranging from George Harrison and John Lennon's classic, "Here Comes the Sun", to Sting's bluesy "Sister Moon", the Rolling Stones' epic "Paint it Black", Blondie's signature tune, "Call Me" and the edgy "Something I Can Never Have" by Nine Inch Nails, all brilliantly and surprisingly re-imagined. On her originals she demonstrates broad compositional skill and a range of cultural and folkloric influences, from the straight ahead jazz romp on "Elements" to the up-tempo tour de force, "Here and Now", and Middle Eastern influences on "Dance Of The Rain", each featuring the highly acclaimed Israeli bassist, Omer Avital, featured on the oud on the latter. Also evident is a Celtic spin on the title tune, "Convergence", enhanced by the lyrical playing of tenor saxophonist Bill McHenry.

Personnel: Lynne Arriale (piano), Omer Avital (acoustic bass, oud), Anthony Pinciotti (drums), Bill McHenry (tenor saxophone)
