Being a clarinet and saxophon teacher I always liked Dan Haerle's piano playing on the various Aebersold Jazz Play-Alongs. So I was curious about his own music. This is a set of tunes in various styles but with a distinct personal approach. It ranges from funky or latin (with a little bit of Herbie's influence in his playing) to modern mainstream jazz (with a little bit of Bill Evans influence). As a trio they are functioning very smooth and are listening very well to one another. The keyboards are used in a good way with the purpose to add color to the character of the compositions. There is nothing to run away from, which would be in other cases my usual reaction to the use of keyboards (!). This is very nice, relaxed music with a lot of experience and thought behind it. Very enjoyable and recommended.
