With his new Resonance Records CD, The Blues and the Abstract Truth – Take 2
, Grammy-nominated 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 triumphant 1961 album (on Impulse! Records) featuring Eric Dolphy
. Freddie Hubbard
, and Bill Evans
. The classic Nelson tunes (“Stolen Moments,” “Yearnin’,” etc.) are augmented by a pair of fine Cunliffe originals, “Port Authority” and “Mary Lou's Blues.”
