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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
