Parisot is in his realm here, unleashing a torrent of fills and cymbal accents throughout... The level of pure, seething virtuosity is stunning.

Drummer Phil Parisot's third release as a leader is a project inspired by the life and music of Johann Sebastian Bach. While shifting his focus to composition in recent years, Parisot observed that countless roads lead to Bach, whether through Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, or even Albert Einstein. This insight inspired Parisot to research Bach's personal journey and compositional approach, then apply this knowledge when developing his own material. Inventions is a humble tribute to the "musical scientist" from Thuringia, whom Beethoven referred to as "the immortal God of harmony." "Parisot never seems to run out of inspired thought as a composer, or original rhythmic conception as a drummer." - All About Jazz

Reviews of Inventions

Midwest Record (Chris Spector)
The high octane drummer wrote all the tracks here but they were all inspired by Bach. Don't know if you'll pick that out in this spirited romp that sounds like a Yankee version of second line funk run wild…and you can't count on us to get past "Inventions for a G String" to pick out references, so…It's just a lot easier to sit back and enjoy t ...

All About Jazz (Jack Bowers)
Even at a time when jazz has broadened its horizons to encompass music from a wide variety of sources, it is not often that one happens upon a jazz album inspired by the life and music of Johann Sebastian Bach. However, that is the premise animating drummer Phil Parisot's sunlit Inventions, an astute post-bop session wherein Bach's muse may be pres ...
