Description:Out of print! Only a few copies left!

Bill Mays is one of my favorite jazz pianists working today. With firm roots in the traditional, straight-ahead jazz, he has impeccable technique, great taste and a streak of adventurous mind that makes his solos unpredictable and exciting.

His latest recording, a fresh live date from October 2009, is now released by a small independent label in Japan, Five Stars Records. Recorded live in concert at the Five Stars' own "jazz house" in Yokohama, this CD brought Mays together with the legendary drummer Joe LaBarbera and a young Japanese bassist, Ryu Kawamura.

Judging from the performance and Mays' own liner notes (printed in English!), the three were relaxed, inspired, and thoroughly enjoyed playing together for the appreciative audience. Flanked by two giants, Kawamura more than holds his own with his big tone and great command of the instrument. Indeed, he is given ample solo spaces and turns in impressive performances. LaBarbera is perfect both as accompanist and soloist, and Mays displays his creativity throughout.

A very satisfying and enjoyable trio album by a formidable pianist in his prime! Recommended!

Recorded at Five Stars Records, Yokohama, Japan, on October 9, 2009.
