Dave Peck, Modern Romance
Let’s Play Stella Records announces the release of pianist Dave Peck’s Modern Romance, Live at Jazz Alley. This set of standard songs from the Great American Songbook continues the trio’s exploration into the reinvention of the jazz piano trio. Peck who is known for his deeply introspective and passionate style has been lauded by the jazz press for his award winning CD’s. Joining Dave on this set is Jeff Johnson on bass and Joe La Barbera on drums. AllAboutJazz says, “Peck values economy and does amazing things harmonically. It’s the circle of the complete ensemble, pianist, accompaniment, and new composition very close to each other.” On Modern Romance Dave and the trio bring to this set of familiar standards a modern and fresh approach. Modern Romance is surprising and beautiful and comes to the listener in a swinging and easy way. The songs are love songs, old love songs but the interpretation is distinctly contemporary.
