Bill Cunliffe: The Blues and the Abstract Truth

7:30 PM EDT | 6:45 PM DOORS

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.”
