Product Description

CD Description

The album features a new working trio that includes recent Thelonious Monk Competition winner Ben Williams on bass, Jamire Williams on drums and a handful of special guests. Push, Terrasson’s 11th overall album and Concord Jazz debut, moves forward with a program of invigorating new repertoire and standards that infuse the familiar with the unlikely, including nods to Michael Jackson.

Ever since pianist extraordinaire Jacky Terrasson burst upon the jazz scene in 1993 by winning the Thelonious Monk Piano Competition, he has consistently recorded richly refined and remarkably free-spirited music. After delivering 10 CDs for Blue Note Records, Terrasson’s Concord Jazz debut Push is an 11-track gem of dynamic pianism that opens up a new door onto his creative technique and ingenuity.

Push features seven new Terrasson compositions as well as a sampling of fresh spins on standards, including two Monk tunes and a Cole Porter beauty as well as a version of the timeless melody “Body and Soul” melded with “Beat It,” Michael Jackson’s Thriller hit. On board for the ride are Terrasson’s core trio mates, bassist Ben Williams and drummer Jamire Williams (no relation), plus such guests as harmonica ace Gregoire Maret, tenor saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart, guitarist Matthew Stevens and percussion Cyro Baptista, who quietly stars on three numbers.

To Terrasson, Push represents “the beginning of something new even though it’s tied to everything I’ve done before. There are a lot more of my own compositions--more than ever--and it’s like the introduction to a new stage in my musical life.”

As for the one-word title, Terrasson smiles when reminded that several of his previous recordings were also one-worders: Reach (1996), Rendezvous (with Cassandra Wilson, 1997), Alive (1998), Smile (2002) and Mirror (2007). “I like it that way,” he says. “It’s short and to the point. Push.”

5.0 out of 5 stars JAZZ PIANIST JACKY TERRASSON'S IMPRESSIVE "PUSH" 11 Nov 2012
By RBSProds TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
5 BIG Stars! "Push" captures the award-winning jazz piano virtuoso/composer/arranger Jacky Terrasson and his trio (with rising stars: Ben Williams on bass and Jamire Williams on drums) with guests Gregoire Maret on harmonica and Jacques Schwarz-Bart on tenor sax. And the recording is a thing of jazz beauty: at times funky, ("Gaux Girl", "Say Yeah"), blazing fast, (the amazing "Beat Bop"), beautiful ("Ruby My Dear"), hard bop ("Morning") and hard-swinging and inventive throughout. This is my first encounter with Mr. Terrasson and he is a powerful 'end-to-end keyboard' pianist of great facility, thematic conceptualization, solo angularity, and inventiveness. The 'best of the best' includes a lush "Ruby, My Dear" featuring harmonica-master Maret trading theme leads and solo fragments with Terrasson. Jacky takes "Round Midnight" for a thrill-ride that surprises, with twists and turns and tempo-shifts that enliven the normally melancholy mood of the song. An angular version of Cole Porter's "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To" is disguised in an inventive solo. "Morning" features guest tenor saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart's inventive solo and "O Café, O Soleil" is a blazing latin theme and performance. Jacky Terrasson is a great jazz pianist and this trio performance with guests is Very Highly Recommended. Five "Jazzy" Stars. (11 tracks; 56 minutes: 21 seconds)
