✨✧ Renee Rosnes & The DrummondsBeautiful Friendship ... CD
Video Arts (Japan), 2002. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Pianist Renee Rosnes joins The Drummonds group of drummer Billy Drummond and bassist Ray – bringing her sweetly swinging style on the keys into play with the pair's spacious approach to rhythm! There's an open, contemplative quality to this record that we really like a lot – one that approaches the familiar tunes with a bit of pause at times – pulling them apart, contemplating the components, then rolling forward with confidence into a more lively approach to the tune. We don't remember Renee ever sounding this good on other records – and titles include "Never Let Me Go", "My One & Only Love", "Stally By Starlight", "Gone With The Wind", "Angel Eyes", and "A Beautiful Friendship".

✨✧ Renee Rosnes & The DrummondsOnce Upon A Time ... CD
Video Arts (Japan), 2003. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Another great meeting between pianist Renee Rosnes and the Drummonds rhythm team of drummer Billy and bassist Ray! As on the trio's previous effort, the sound here is subtle, but wonderful – a familiar mode of piano jazz expression, but one that's handled with a really fluid sense of grace and warmth – careful in the choice of every note and where it's placed, but coming off with a really natural sort of swing. There's a legacy of Bill Evans that certainly informs the work, but it's one that he'd certainly be proud of – and titles include "You Must Believe In Spring", "Estate", "Summer Night", "Blackberry Winter", "Lullaby Of The Leaves", "Winter Of My Discontent", and "Spring Is Here".

✨✧ Renee RosnesWritten In The Rocks ... CD
Smoke Sessions, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most compelling albums we've heard from pianist Renee Rosnes in a long time – a set that features Rosnes working at the head of a very hip quintet with Steve Nelson on vibes and Steve Wilson on alto, flute, and soprano sax! Both of the Steves really open up the sound here – taking the music into deeper, more ambitious territory than usual for Renee – especially as the core of the album is built around the extended "Galapagos Suite", which features these patterns of shifting colors and shades that are especially great in the way they combine the piano and Nelson's vibes. The rest of the group features the mighty Peter Washington on bass and Bill Stewart on drums – and titles include "Goodbye Mumbai", "Lucy From Afar", "Written In The Rocks", "The KT Boundary", "So Simple A Beginning", and "From Here To A Star".
