Live @ Athenaeum Jazz by Mike Wofford

I started out listening to the wonderful jazz ballad 'My Old Flame,' & the haunting lateral treatment of harmonic poylphony Mike gave to the tune.........literally re-inventing it for our instruction. If the 'live' audience response is any barometer,then Wofford is a musical entity that has 'exploded' onto our jazz landscape. This is a jazz piano master @ home with the complicated intertwining of jazz harmony & scale choice.....and his choices seem always mysteriously correct as you listen carefully to his horn-lines. This is a coherent, virtuosic master who plays piano jazz with an intricacy that doesn't cloud your understanding of solid musical form.
