Notes

Notes
The piano trio has always held a special place in the jazz idiom. The combination of piano, bass and drums is intimate and complementary, and the interactional possibilities between musicians are boundless. The piano also thrives in duets with vocalists, and as a solo instrument it has no peer. I hope you enjoy my take on the modern jazz piano tradition in these settings featuring two of the finest purveyors of the art of rhythm sectioning, Greg Hutchinson and Reuben Rogers, and the impeccable vocal stylings of newcomer Erin Bode. I’ll see you “In the P.M.”

Martin returns to the studio with his long time collaborators Reuben Rogers, bass; and Greg Hutchinson, drums; a trio that currently backs Grammy-award-winning vocalist Dianne Reeves. In The P.M. also features MAXJAZZ recording artist and vocalist Erin Bode on three of the eleven tracks. All arrangements are by Martin, who produced the album and wrote two of the eleven songs.

About the CD
In The P.M. presents over 60 minutes of fresh repertoire in a trio setting. The album begins with Martin’s crisp take on “Never Let Me Go” by Jay Livingston and Raymond Evans. Stevie Wonder’s classic composition “If It’s Magic” follows with Martin providing rich harmonic content over the melody. Next is Martin’s upbeat rendition of Cole Porter’s song “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To” that features a driving solo by Greg Hutchinson and a vocal contribution by Erin Bode. Martin gives a moving solo performance on the standard “Come Rain Or Come Shine.” The trio returns at a faster pace for Martin’s first original offering “Modern Cacophony”. Martin draws us in with a slow, intimate opening solo on “Only In A Dream” by Jessie Davis. Martin’s second original, “The Answer,” provides open space for the bass and drums, allowing Martin to punctuate on top of the rhythm. The trio slows to a steady pace again on the lovely ballad “Lament” by J.J. Johnson. Bassist Reuben Rogers contributes an original titled “’Ting For Ray,” showcasing the trio’s ability to cut loose in a bluesy groove. The final two selections “The Nearness Of You” and “It Could Happen To You” are lovely piano duets with vocalist Erin Bode.
