Meant as an homage to the great Hank Jones, the title of Bay Area pianist Debbie Poryes' latest trio recording also offers a metaphor for the significance the jazz masters, the music and the players have in her life. With longtime bandmates Peter Barshay on bass and drummer David Rokeach, those feelings shine through as the trio brings warmth, intelligence and swing to a collection of six originals, along with creative modern arrangements of standards including "Wonderful Day" and "How About You," and a special look at Joni Mitchell's classic, "Both Sides Now." "...(her) arranging involves sophistication with warmth and open-ended possibilities. As a result, American songbook gems...sound fresh and invigorating..." - All About Jazz.
