Bob Gluck
Sideways is the debut recording by the Bob Gluck Trio, displaying the group's uniquely creative yet disciplined edge to jazz performance. The trio's watchwords are collaboration, listening and response, and collective dynamism. Structured tunes flow in and out of free improvisation, taking the performers and listeners alike to unexpected imaginative places. Gluck's piano sounds subtly range between the purely acoustic and digitally transformed, joined by Sharp's broadly ranging sonic array of percussion and Bisio's distinctly physical approach to the string bass.

Erik Lawrence (Chronogram) describes Sideways as the work of “...an accomplished and passionate pianist... [who] crafts a language of intense thinking, feeling, listening, and creating, mostly all at once..." Peter Aaron (Roll) hears the recording as “a marvel of confident restraint... content to live in the moment as Gluck, Bisio, and Sharp converse with calculated simpatico, each playing his hand like a shrewd shark, content to wait it out and let the chips fall where they may."

Sideways was released by the British jazz label FMR, home to the work of notables like Elton Dean, Dave Liebman, John Surman, Paul Dunmall and Keith Tippett. Listening to this CD, you'll agree with Peter Aaron that “making this is one game you'll want to be in on."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
