Trio Plays The Richard Rodgers Song Book on SACD!
Established in Miami, on life support in L.A., then finally burnished in New
York City, the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio's aesthetic can be summed up in three
words: mood, sizzle and swing. Their sound is classic yet timeless in its mode
of expression, captivating ardent lovers of the jazz idiom and Tin Pan Alley
The focus is on standards - tunes collectively known as The Great American Song
Book. Without imposing trite gimmicks or relying on overt displays of flash and
technical wizardry, the trio stays true to the original musical and lyrical
content of the material, with an emphasis on melodic elegance and swinging
verve. The influence of Nelson Riddle, Oscar Peterson, Erroll Garner and Ahmad
Jamal can be felt and heard, but is never blatantly mimicked.
Direct, simple, yet intriguing, they improvise solo narratives with toe-tapping
nonchalant grace. There is something humble in this approach, but the attitude
with which the music is delivered is one of confident passion. The message it
carries comes across in pristine fashion—the Konrad Paszkudzki Trio leads the
way in today’s world of swinging, sophisticated jazz.
