Old Roads New Paths
'Old Roads...New Paths' is primarily based out of traditional jazz roots, with new arrangements and reharmonizations on classic standards; a mix of old songs done in a new way. This is the second solo album by Rob, a return for him to the 'staples' of jazz- the standards- and here he is in good hands with a swinging rhythm section of John Menegon (bass) and Jeff Dowd (drums); the piano trio in it's true form. - - - - below, a review done by J.Hunter - - - '... Robert Lindquist has taken the middle course on 'Old Roads... New Paths', with eminently satisfying results...There's ample passion here, but there's also more than a little precision...Like the title says, 'Old Roads... New Paths' goes where many others have gone before. However, just like in life, it's the journey, not the destination, and Robert Lindquist is a tour guide who knows some short cuts and back roads that make the trip worthwhile...' ~ qoutes from 'albanyjazz.com' -- J.Hunter ( HUNTER is a former announcer/producer for radio stations in Albany, NY, including KSJS/San Jose and Q104 WQBK/Albany.
