Deborah Weisz Trio
Va Wah

A quiet get-together between old friends, this warm, gentle disc is appealing and unpretentious. Trombonist Weisz avoids unnecessary flash and bravado, playing bop and romantic standards with intimate nonchalance. Her husky tone and relaxed pacing give the session a conversational air, as she exchanges confidences with two perfectly attuned companions. Guitarist Sheryl Bailey’s bright yet mellow lines and the serene swing of bassist Nicki Parrott suspend time and troubles, sketching sweet rhythms that are comfortable but never trite.
