Rich Rudin: Compositions

This debut release, abstract yet accessible, shows pianist Rich Rudin to be a composer of considerable versatility and facility. All 13 tunes are the originals. Rubin is on solo piano on “Dark Ruby,” “No Answers” and “Doggie Dance.” “Musk” and “Strays” pair Rudin sparring with bassist Bruce Kaminsky. The remaining tunes, including the darkly-hued “Lament,” are quartet numbers.
