[Download MP3] - Alan Pasqua: Dedications

<< Previous in Alan Pasqua Next in Alan Pasqua >>
Price: $7.99
Item Number: 87710122
Artist: Pasqua, Alan featuring Randy & Michael Brecker

Jazz Pianist Alan Pasqua has dedicated his second album on Postcards Records to the incredibly rich tradition of Jazz. On the appropriately titled Alan Pasqua: Dedications, his compositions cover the stylistic spectrum from Swing and Bebop through today's polytonality, and are heard in the trio, quartet, and quintet settings. Building from a core trio featuring Dave Holland on bass and Paul Motian on drums (they have rarely recorded together before), Pasqua adds Michael Brecker (seldom-heard on soprano saxophone) on one tune, and then creates two different quintets, one with both Michael and Randy Brecker, and the other with Randy Brecker and Gary Bartz.


"wonderfully fresh"                                         - The Wall Street Journal


"…thoroughly satisfying and enjoyable… From bop to swing,

Alan Pasqua & co. (in trio, quartet, and quintet settings) joyously

explore many facets of the jazz tradition, adding zest and their own

voices to every one of Alan's excellent compositions."                                                                                                             - The Music Advocate


Outside of Jazz, Pasqua has played with Carlos Santana, Bob Dylan, Aretha Franklin, and Elton John, but with this album, the pianist/composer proves his true Jazz nature. From the lush "Ellingtonia" through the ethereal modality of "San Michele," on this album from Postcards, entitled Alan Pasqua: Dedications (also available on CD), the renowned pianist boldly accomplishes the challenging undertaking of leaving his unique and masterful imprint on this homage to the giants of the Jazz heritage.
