MUSIC REVIEW BY Dave Rogers, WTJU - Richmond

Pianist Michael Kocour played with the late saxophonist James Moody for the last decade of his life and was profoundly influenced by his musical and philosophical insights. He also cites the words of pianist Mulgrew Miller as the anchor for his own musical belief: "...jazz is both a progressive art and a folk art...moving the music forward or establishing a unique identity do not demand leaving traditional elements like swing, blues and song form." The set list on this solo piano / Fender Rhodes disc is his demonstration of that thesis. In addition to playing two of his own compositions, Kocour draws from the songbooks of Dizzy Gillespie, Eddie Harris, Irving Berlin, Harry Warren and Thelonious Monk to demonstrate his lens on this perspective.
