2012 release from the Jazz pianist joined by bassist Steve Swallow and drummer Joey Baron. Wisteria takes a fresh look at several pieces last heard on record in Kuhn's orchestral Promises Kept collection - "Promises Kept" itself, "Adagio", "Morning Dew" and "Pastorale". Kuhn's compositions, few in number but robust and adaptable, have often lent themselves to quite different interpretations. If anything, these small group versions emphasize the emotional core of the material. Counterbalancing the yearning balladry, the album also includes driving, exciting hard bop (on "A Likely Story", for instance, and Swallow's "Good Lookin' Rookie), Carla Bley's gospel-tinged "Permanent Wave", and the Brazilian "Romance" by Dori Caymmi… It's a varied program which the trio seems to sail through effortlessly, musicians secure in their craft, beyond the need to prove anything, creating the agreeable illusion that this demanding music is playing itself.

Kuhn is a jazz pianist whose recordings may have been out of the jazz mainstream for most of the five decades his career has spanned, but it hardly matters. Kuhn's style is signature, though his explorations have taken him to many different terrains in the world of jazz, from knotty post-bop to pointillism and modalism and through the nefarious world of 20th century vanguard composition to the place where listeners find him now: the place of a supreme and unabashed lyricism that is as sophisticated and forward-looking as it is historical and inclusive.

Genre: Jazz

Wisdom and wistfulness are intertwined in “Wisteria”, whose title track, written by Art Farmer, takes us back to the early 60s, when both Steve Kuhn and Steve Swallow sang softly of the blues in the trumpeter-flugelhornist’s band. They’ve shared a lot of history since then. Swallow played on Kuhn’s classic “Trance”; Kuhn played on Swallow’s “Home” and “So There”. Drummer Joey Baron has been heard with Kuhn on ECM discs including “Remembering Tomorrow” and the dazzling tribute disc “Mostly Coltrane”. This new album takes a fresh look at several pieces heard in Kuhn’s orchestral “Promises Kept” collection, but alongside the aching balladry there is also some driving hard bop (on “A Likely Story”) , a brace of Swallow tunes (“Dark Glasses”), Carla Bley’s gospel-tinged “Permanent Wave” and the Brazilian “Romance” by Dori Caymmi.

Wisdom and wistfulness are intertwined in Wisteria, whose title track, written by Art Farmer, takes listeners back to the early 1960s, when both pianist Steve Kuhn and bassist Steve Swallow sang softly of the blues in the trumpeter-flugelhornist's band. The pair know each other's playing well: in accord at a very high level, they develop their improvisational ideas together and share the same love of melody.

Any chance that one has to hear a master musician in his or her preferred setting is a gift. For all the one-offs and ensemble by committee type of gigs that spring up, it is the reunion with familiar collaborators for a stint of a few nights that really becomes integral for the best performances.

In Steve Kuhn's 70th birthday year (2008) three historic recordings by the great American pianist are issued for the first time on CD in a specially-priced, digitally re-mastered 3-CD box set under the title 'Life's Backward Glances.' Contains the much sought-after albums 'Ecstasy', 'Motility' and 'Playground', recorded in 1974, 1977 and 1979. All are new to CD except 'Ecstasy' which was previously available only in Japan. LPs of all three albums are long out of print and highly collectable. 'Ecstasy' belongs in the line of great solo piano discs on ECM including Chick Corea, Paul Bley and Keith Jarrett - Kuhn's album is a major statement on this level. 'Motility' featured Kuhn's working quartet of the mid-70s, with dynamic saxophonist Steve Slagle, and 'Playground' introduced the very popular quartet with singer Sheila Jordan. Personnel: Steve Kuhn (piano) with: Sheila Jordan (vocals), Steve Slagle (saxophones, flute), Harvie Swartz (double-bass), Bob Moses, Michael Smith (drums).
