New Ways Forward
Modern, lyrical, acoustic piano trio offers fresh versions of jazz standards with strong rhythmic grooves that swing and lush ballads. This recording mixes elements of Jazz, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, and Classical music. Ted is joined on his debut recording by two very talented musicians Ryan Kotler (Bass), and Allan Ward (Drums). Together the trio forms a dynamic, engaging, and well-integrated unit. The music on this CD represents a collection of standards, as well as one original, that introduce a piano trio rooted in the tradition but reaching forward. All tracks Arranged and Produced by Ted Perry, 2008.
