MUSIC REVIEW BY Kyle O'Brien, Jazz Society of Oregon

VIEW THE CD DETAIL PAGE

Guitarist Cotsirilos is a veteran Bay Area player with a polished grit to his playing. Here he appears with bassist Robb Fisher and drummer Ron Marabuto in a stripped down swing trio. The opener, "Good Wood," features Cotsirilos on his deep hollow body, strumming and picking over a minor blues groove. He alters the chords enough to keep things interesting and delivers a solo that is both commanding and laid back. "The Way You Look Tonight" gets an upbeat waltz treatment, with Fisher's sturdy bass work anchoring the buoyant beat. The nice thing about this disc is its lack of pretense. It's a simple, stripped down trio -- pure guitar, bass and drums -- and all three players click with each other, making this a pleasing listen.
