Clare Fischer - Surging Ahead

Early trio work from pianist Clare Fischer — definitely surging ahead at this point in his career ! The set's got a bit more of a freewheeling sound than some of Fischer's later, more arranged material — lots of tight piano from Clare in the lead, swung with a good blend of soul jazz energy mixed with Latin and Brazilian influences — with support from a few different rhythm teams, players who include Gary Peacock, Ralph Peña, and Albert Stinson on bass — and Gene Stone, Larry Bunker, and Colin Bailey on drums ! Some of the tracks are a bit longer than you'd expect for such a record — taking things nicely past conventional trio expectations – and titles include "Billie's Bounce", "Way Down East"...

Just had a back-up computer crash, with half my jazz archive on it; so not sure whether I had this or not. But I'll take the opportunity to hear it now. Many thanks, mel...
