2001 INDIE finalist Randy Porter brings yet another innovative jazz piano trio to life with “Brio”. Besides featuring a fluid ensemble that elegantly brings listeners unexpected perspectives on standard material, “Brio” also offers the kind of clear musical vistas we have come to expect from this great jazz pianist’s original material; as evidenced by his previous recording “Eight Little Feet”.
Joining him on this recording are John Wiitala on bass and Reinhardt Melz on drums. From the liner notes, here is a bit of what Randy has to say about each of these gifted musicians: “special thanks to John Wiitala whose deep organic feel for rhythm and phrasing combines with his quick ears and intuition to put him in the right place at the right time.” “…and to Reinhardt who excels at finding diverse grooves with a creative, refreshing, challenging and highly musical perspective.” If you are a jazz lover at all, you will want to be sure to pick up a copy of this innovative recording. As JazzTimes says, “Randy Porter’s peaks of intensity, lyricism, imaginative harmonies, and the sensitivity of his touch show why listeners and musicians across the country are talking about him.”
