A Vancouver jazz ensemble scratches out a second long-play that's, at times, wry-witty; at times, rye whisky.
Geoff Peters Trio's Quiet Night is part original and part cover, recorded on an old Steinway grand. It's also an exploration of self. It entertains many philosophies but arrives at a humbling conclusion. The lads, their followers are beginning to learn, are thoughtful but more neurotic with every release.
The trio tight rope walks on the edge of jazz and pop, mainstream and creativity. What else could you expect from a city that produces jazz greats of that kind. The group follows Diana Krall, Michael Buble and others. But pianist Geoff Peters says Keith Jarret, Bill Evans and Kenny Barron are greater influences. Listeners might also detect elements of Brad Mehldau's Trio, the Bad Plus and the Chick Corea New Trio.
Part of the album's distinctiveness comes from the percussion: Greg Murray, an indie rocker who drops tastes of the genre on this track and that. He's happy to have no visual cues.
"The less we rely on reading the sheet music, the better we play," he says. "We can pay more attention to one another without the distraction of the written chart. Better focus and interaction allows us to stray from the traditional version of the song further than we normally could, allowing us to come up with something more unique, new and exciting."
Mark White adds soul on the bass guitar.
