Review

Review Text An excellent modern mainstream pianist, Gerard Hagen makes his debut as a leader on this trio/quartet set. Bassist Domenic Genova and drummer Jerry Halaf give Hagen stimulating support, and altoist Gary Foster is in top form during his guest appearances, sounding a lot like Lee Konitz. Hagen, who is influenced by Bill Evans and Tommy Flanagan but mostly sounds like himself, performs seven standards that he reinvents with subtlety, one song by Halaf and two of his own originals. The thoughtful music swings, and although Hagen has impressive technique, he uses it to serve the music rather than the other way around. Overall this is an excellent outing. ~ Scott Yanow
