Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Eric Reed's Happiness is a new CD that satisfyingly showcases the artist's burgeoning skills as pianist and writer. He is joined by Nagel-Heyer stalwarts Wycliffe Gordon on trombone, trumpeter Marcus Printup and Wayne Escoffery on tenor and soprano saxes, and they all do their reputations no harm at all with contributions that are consistently cogent and debonair. The pivotal track, and the only one not written by Reed, is Ellington's "Mood Indigo"; excellent in its own right, it somehow suffuses the entire session, for both pianistically and compositionally Reed is steeped in Duke. "Fine and Brown" recalls the insouciant brilliance of Johnny Hodges's small group sides, while elsewhere the combination of propulsive swing and audacious orchestral colour is profoundly Ellingtonian. Reed is no mere pasticheur, however. As "Black Beauty" in particular exemplifies, he shapes and directs his music with unalloyed integrity. In all, Happiness is cheering proof that modern-mainstream jazz is not only alive and well but full of fresh vigour. --Richard Palmer

5.0 out of 5 stars True Happiness 12 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Happiness is indeed this new Eric Reed CD! Joyful music, the best sidemen in the business, beautiful improvs and swing, swing, swing. A big thank you to Mr. Reed's new label (Nagel-Heyer) for giving us a CD full of original compositions (but for one Ellington song - and how bad could that be?). For us fans of Mr. Reed's fresh and intelligent compositions, it was a long but well-rewarded wait. It's hard to pick a favorite, but the title cut and "Suite Sisters" (esp. "Black Beauty") are in the lead. Then again there are "Three Dances" and Reed's "Romantic Rag," a musical genre which Mr. Reed claims for a new generation and makes you wish Willie "The Lion" Smith were still around to battle it out with him. Well, you'll just have to decide for yourself. You will not regret picking this one up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Reed must be speaking from a truly personal experience! 10 Jun 2001
By "corkycork" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It's so nice to finally hear some new original music by Eric Reed. He's really a gifted composer. I was beginning to wonder if he was going to record something again soon. This new thing is very different from most of the stuff that's out today and even a departure for Reed. My favorites are "Happiness", "Three Dances" and the 3 pieces in "Suite Sisters." The surprise cut, however, is "Someone Else's Love." When I first heard it, I thought that my CD changer had switched discs. Brother Reed has some new ingenious surprises for us.
