Noah Haidu – Momentum

On Momentum , the sophomore recording by pianist Noah Haidu, he aptly demonstrates his versatility as a musician. Haidu possesses a master touch on the keys and an epic sense of swing. His runs across the keys and speed are blazing and amazing, and the timekeeping he maintains to keep it within the parameters of the tune is something special. Haidu and his trio, featuring McClenty Hunter on drums and Ariel de la Portilla on bass, work together very well. The song list here is a mix of nicely re-worked familiar standards and bright originals composed by the pianist. Haidu is really a talent worth checking out .
