I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Stories From Solitude, from Domi Edson Trio and it's every enjoyable. Opening with Frank Foster's Shiny Stockings, Spencer Zweifel on piano sets the melody on piano. A bright bouncy pace is the theme with Bobby Wiens on drum and of course highlighting the deft bass work of Domi Edson on upright bass. Nice opener. Domi's New Blues is a strong track with Edson leading the way on upright bass and Wiens on brushes. With a boogie feel, Zweifel adds in a melodic piano solo fleshing out the track nicely. One of my favorite tracks on the release isoriginal composition, Panoramic, a melodic ballad with a light, Latin, drum rhythm and nicely phrased piano melody and firm support from Edson on bass. Arthur Schwartz's You And The Night And The Music has great tempo and a lively bass line by Edson tightly stuck to Zweifel on piano melody and with fluid improvosation really makes this track fly. With a bit of space for Wiens to solo on this one, another great addition. Crocos has a tight Latin influenced rhythm reinforced by Wiens on rinshot and Edson with well placed bass. Piano melody is well articulated by Zweifel making this an ideal radio track. When You're Smiling is Edson's track with melody led by Edson on bowed bass. With only brushes and a hit of piano punctuation on a good portion of the track, Edson really shines. Filling out the track Zweifel takes the lead for a really solid close. Wrapping the release is Freddie Hubbard's Up Jumped Spring with a really springy pace. Edson lays in a real nice bass solo and and then Zweifel following her lead really lays it out. With excellent balance from Edson and Wiens, this is a strong closer.
