GEOFF SIMKINS TRIO - In A Quiet Way. Symbol SR20170301. Geoff Simkins (alto); Dave Green (bass); Nikki Iles (piano) Geoff Simkins describes his music as ‘rather more Edward Hopper than Jackson Pollock’. Could also be ‘rather more Jane Austen than Norman Mailer’. The school of music that has emanated from Tristano places a high premium on intelligent improvisation. Over the musical decades of turbulence and changes it has probably been difficult to adhere to that faith. Simkins has. Dave Green is one of the real heroes of UK jazz, with his fleet but solid playing.

Don't Ask is the inaugural album for a new British jazz label, Symbol Records. If the album were to have a subtitle, it might be A Short History of the Bop Alto Saxophone since Charlie Parker. And this is no surprise, since most of the tunes on the program were composed by musicians who were weaned during the Parker era. This is a good album, with an interesting, challenging play list, a challenge the players meet and conquer with relative ease. On "Denny Zeitlin's "Quiet Now", listen to the well constructed interplay between Simkins and the Bill Evans'-like piano of Nikki Iles resulting in a inkling of what a Bill Evans, rather than a Dave Brubeck, Quartet featuring Paul Desmond might have sounded like - even more introspective than the Brubeck group. And introspective, coupled with relaxing, is the key to appreciating the performing philosophy.

Uplifting, melodic originals from superb pianist Hutton, drawing on classic NY jazz as well as European and folk influences with sax-led modern jazz from Simkins on the early set. Posted: Thursday October 11 2012.
