Album: Remembered Time
Nette Robinson Sings with Michael Garrick (JAZA18)
 

review of "Remembered Time" in MOJO

Garrick has never made it easy.  His seven original compositions on his  tribute to the late Bill Evans throw up many complexities, yet retain a simplicity of style-much in the manner of Evans' piano work.  Nette Robinson, his partner in this project, not so much sings but breathes the lyrics while accurately negotiating the occasionally difficult melody lines.  Garrick of course, is a gifted accompanist, ever supportive yet able to grab ears solo-wise.  The result is a rewarding release that spotlights several of Evans' own compositions.  Bassist Matt Ridley appears on most tracks while there are notable assists from saxophonist Tony Woods and Garrick's own son Gabriel, whose flugelhorn solo on the Keats inspired "Shining Light " is memorable.
