Piano-driven (and, well, driving piano) that comes out swinging and doesn't let up for pretty much its entire 61 minutes and 26 seconds. Definitely not your traditional piano-based trio to plop on for an easy listening Sunday morning. In fact, this one would be more like the one you want on one of those boring, sunny Sundays that signal the end of the weekend and the beginning of the work week. It'll snap you out of your funk with its edgy melodies, occasional flounces into Latin rhythms and loads of sweet key tinklings that dance on the outskirts of tradition.
Not quite always innovative, but not quite sitting on the fence wondering which way to jump, either. Good instrumentals to imagine your own lyrics to.
