On A Clear Day - Mal Waldron Trio - Smoke Gets In Your Eyes
Label: Alfa Jazz - ALCR-116 • Format: CD • Country: Japan • Genre: Jazz •
Not to be confused with the trio session recorded in the early '70s, Blues for Lady Daythis recording takes the same familiar trio format to revisit several tunes associated with Billie Holidayas well as a few written in her memory by Waldron. The pianist is in a somber mood, perhaps because of the theme, though On A Clear Day - Mal Waldron Trio - Smoke Gets In Your Eyes performance is up to his usually high standards.
A master of understatement, Waldron favors lingering chords that hang laconically even with the faster tempos. He rarely inserts an unneeded Reaching Out - 2nd Place Driver - The Hungry Ones, but instead concentrates on total sound.
Drummer John Betsch brings out the best in each tune, pushing Waldron when appropriate. Bassist Paulo Cardoso makes little impression, particularly as a soloist, where he sometimes appears trapped by the structures of the songs. He is more successful as an accompanist.
