CD Release Concert: Tine Bruhn/Johnny O'Neal
Mar 25, 2013 09:00 PM - 10:30 PM
CD Release Concert of "Nearness" (out March 26)
"Think of a time when a singer simply stood next to the piano. She sings, he plays and, oh yeah, there’s a great tenor sax on some songs. Now’s the time and Tine Bruhn makes the most of it with the marvelous jazz pianist Johnny O’Neal and young sax player, Stacy Dillard. She’s deep into the American songbook of Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, Johnny Mercer and others and she has the remarkable ability to make each song hers by the end. “The Nearness of You,” from which the album title is drawn, is simply seven and a half minutes of bliss. If an album can glow with light, this one does." (Brian Arsenault, International Review Of Music)
"Despite taking different artistic paths, all three of these artists have arrived at a similar place where they can share their experiences and speak the same language freely; this state of nearness is the charm behind this album." (AllAboutJazz)
"Organic and straight from the heart, this is "last call" jazz you would hear in some of the finest jazz venues in New York. Bruhn's tone and phrasing alone are a reharm that arrangers dream of." (Critical Jazz)
