Gordon Johnson
Jazz bassist Gordon Johnson has created a revolving door for pianists & drummers who are involved on this unique jazz trios disc, featuring drummer Peter Erskine & the late pianist Manfredo Fest among notable others. drums - Dave Anania, Jay Epstein, Peter Erskine, Gordy Knudtson, Dave Mancini, Joe Pulice Piano - John R.Burr, Bill Carrothers, Manfredo Fest, Biff Hannon, Chris Lomheim, Bobby Peterson, Benny Weinbeck. bass - Gordon Johnson Bringing in seven different pianists and six drummers for a series of 11 trio performances with bassist Gordy Johnson is an inspired concept, for it enhances the presence of a gently compelling stylist on the most self-effacing instrument in jazz. Johnson sounds both more adventurous and more at ease in the four tunes he plays alongside ex-Weather Report drummer Peter Erskine (who was Johnson's old cohort in the Maynard Ferguson band two decades ago) and local pianist Chris Lomheim, whose superb, harmonically oriented compositions and absorbing introspection stimulate creativity from the rhythm section. Highlights include a spirited "On The Trail" with pianist Bobby Peterson and drummer Gordy Knudtson, and a jam between Johnson, pianist John Burr and drummer Joe Pulice on "Face Lift" the rousing finale.
