David Gordon (piano), Paul Cavaciuti (drums) and Oli Hayhurst (d. bass)
Piano virtuoso David Gordon’s ‘Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band’ is a celebration of the great Russian composer’s music seen through a kaleidoscope of jazz, Latin, and other influences. The CD was chosen as Mojo’s Jazz CD of 2016: ‘David Gordon is a musician of dazzling range. Here he presents a playful, ingenious, irreverent and deeply respectful reimagining of the eccentric Russian composer’s oeuvre in which Scriabin’s music is filtered through Irving Berlin, foo-de-oh-do vocals, impressionistic jazz, ambient electro, samba, and whatever else occurs to the extravagantly resourceful pianist.’ – Mojo
