|Waltzing out of Town Review from Mark Sullivan - allaboutjazz.com|
|The Richard Shulman Trio - Waltzing Out Of Town|
RichHeart Music 2019
By Mark Sullivan https://www.allaboutjazz.com/a-world-of-piano-trios-by-mark-sullivan.php#.XUnVaGqJKZs.twitter
In addition to his solo projects, Asheville, North Carolina-based pianist/composer Richard Shulman has been heard on the Greenville Jazz Collective Big Band‘s Welcome To Earth(Greenville Jazz Collective, 2019) (also contributing one composition). Here he leads a trio with frequent collaborators bassist Zack Page and drummer Rick Dilling on a program of all-original compositions. Artist Marsha Hammel invited the trio to an event where she would paint a portrait while they performed: so the cover art actually inspired the creation of the album.
Opener “I Don’t Know Yet” (his imagined answer to a question about the name of the song) begins the album with a propulsive straight eighth rhythm. “Waltzing Out-of- Town” delivers the promised waltz with style and swing, and features a fine double bass solo. “Toasted” is a jazz blues with a pronounced Thelonious Monk accent (nice quote from Johnny Burke and Jimmy Van Heusen’s standard “Swinging On A Star”).
“Freedom” provides a dose of funk, while “Walkin’ to Your House” has a hooky ostinato pattern which proves to be a fine accompaniment to bass and drum solos. “For Chick” uses a sprightly Latin groove to honor pianist/composer Chick Corea. Closer “Afternoon Memory” brings the album to a close with a gentle bossa nova. A lovely ending to a varied program of piano trio music.

New CD release "A New Awareness - Music of the Twelve Rays"
|For the past two years, I've been working with my friend Mike Love on a fascinating project to create music blended with the energies of the |
Twelve Rays in collaboration with a book he has written on the practical use of the Rays.
The Rays are energies from Spirit for our evolution, practical use and well-being.
Mike has produced my recording many hours of music in tune with the Rays and this double album is the first release from this body of work.
Mike would hold the energy of a particular ray and I would tune in, turn on the recorder, and improvise the music that came to me on 5 or 6 synthesizer keyboards. Listen Here!
This double CD and Mike's book "The Reality of your Greatness: A Personal Journey through the Twelve Rays" are available HERE.
