SOURCE: Published: 2007-11-13
Sung's new CD Sungbird (After Albeniz) with saxophonist Marcus Strickland, bassist Reuben Rogers, drummer Nasheet Waits, and percussionist Samuel Torres, is the long-awaited follow-up to Sung two Fresh Sound/New Talent label recordings, Helenistique and Push.

Sung sterling pianism blends Chopinesque lyricism and Bill Evans improvisational logic with a linear and logical sense of swing on the CD 12 tracks, half of which were composed by the leader. The six selections from Albeniz composition - relude, ango, alaguena, erenata, apricho Catalan, and ncore: Zortzico are intimate solo keyboard conversations between Sung and the composer exotic Basque, fandango, flamenco, and Gypsy-dance/ballad genres. The rest of the tracks were composed by Sung: reamble is a John Coltrane rescent coded piece that introduces the bouncy, Ahmad Jamal oinciana pulsed, hall We Tango? alaguena Miniatura and ree Fusion are New World/Latin jazzed numbers, and Sung ree Fusion is laced with two-fisted, Lennie Tristano style runs. apricho American evolves from a hymnal aura into down-home spiritual syncopations.
