Kenny Werner – The Melody

July 28, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Ari Hoeing, Johannes Weidenmüller, kenny werner, Pirouet, The Melody,


Pirouet marks pianist Kenny Werner’s first recording with his trio in 7 years. The absence is not evidence in the performances here. What it is heard here is Werner’s mastery of the keys and the musical telepathy of three musicians who know each other and their craft very well. The convergence of intuition and melody are truly mesmerizing to hear. The production is a journey through a mix of Werner compositions and nicely re-constructed works by Dave Brubeck, John Coltrane among others. This is definitely one of our favorites of the year.
