TP & Company is a memorable jazz excursion for all listeners interested in an enjoyable collection of jazz songs. The playing is remarkably smooth and harmonic, and the CD is a nice eclectic collection. Ted Piltzecker has composed most of the songs, and each is a tribute to his vision as gifted jazz composer.
There are seven songs in the collection. Each track is intriguing, and the music is contemporary jazz with a well-defined Brazilian percussion.
Songs include "Steppe Forward," "Flight Following," "He Sent An Angel," Horace Silver's "Nica's Dream," "Kalunga," "Why So Long?," and "Reunion Blues." "Reunion Blues" is a fine work, and worthy of much jazz radio playtime.
Listening to Ted Piltzecker perform on vibes or piano, or percussion is enjoyable. The group is filled with excellent musicians, each an expert on his instrument. Each performance is a nice voyage into what good jazz is all about in comtemporary times, and each performance lingers in the listener's mind with good memories. The melodies are superb!
If you are interested in good, exciting jazz, this is a CD to pick up for your home collection, or for a friend, and to have your local acquisition librarian order for the library. Good solid jazz makes this CD a standout work.
Highly recommended. The vibes work is exceptional.
