Jacky Terrasson Trio - Alive

This is a very subtle date with the musicians utilizing dynamics and a lot of space (a little reminiscent in spots of Ahmad Jamal's Trio). Pianist Jacky Terrasson is so laidback in spots that it is almost as if he does not want to be recognized as the group's leader. Bassist Ugonna Okegwo works closely with him and drummer Leon Parker (famous for using a rather minimal drum set) fits into the concept well. Still, one often finds themselves listening to this music (a variety of originals and standards such as "Things Ain't What They Used to Be," "Sister Cheryl" and "Nature Boy") waiting for something to happen. "Love for Sale" (which is given the catchy bassline of "Chameleon") is a highlight of the intriguing but not essential live set. - by Scott Yanow, AMG
