Steve Allee Trio
Colors
Owl Records

Pianist Steve Allee jumps out of the gate with a brisk attack and a shining, optimistic sound, surfing above rock-steady grooves from cohorts Bill Moring on bass and Tim Horner at the drums. Allee’s toe-tapping compositions have peppy rhythmic bases and attractive melodies. Combined with his lightly percussive, dancing touch at the keyboard, this creates an undemanding but cheerfully satisfying listening experience. The mirthful “Bubbles” is a sweet treat, while “Tree Stories” blooms from simple beginnings to reveal a broad, varied landscape.
