Description

'Frozen Music' was recorded in New York City 32 years ago and like most of pianist Andy LaVerne's releases this album has not lost its original energy and charm.

Tenor and soprano saxophonist Rick Margitza was then a young rising star under contract with Blue Note. Andy was already a prolific composer who penned all the tunes of this album. Bassist Marc Johnson who was a member of Bill Evans's last trio gave graceful and subtle colouring to LaVerne's compositions.

"Frozen Music, Andy LaVerne's third album for SteepleChase, is a solid, modern blowing session...he makes skilful use of suspensions, pedal points, and ostinatos, which along with the music's floating harmonies, give the soloists a wealth of elbow room." - Mark Stryker, Cadence

Personnel: Andy LaVerne (piano), Rick Margitza (tenor and soprano saxophone), Marc Johnson (bass), Danny Gottlieb (drums)
