Grammy Nominated pianist presents updated arrangements of one of the most beloved jazz albums ever!.

With his new album, The Blues and the Abstract Truth, Take 2, pianist Bill Cunliffe doesn't so much reinvent a modern jazz classic as open it for incisive interpretation. Working with clean, uncluttered arrangements and a stellar cast of improvisers, Cunliffe explores Oliver Nelson's beloved 1961 album for Impulse!

Tribute albums are always difficult, as they aren´t intended to replace the recordings they honor, but Bill Cunfiffe has easily achieved his goal on this rewarding CD. Ken Dryden AMG****
