Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band
David Gordon Trio
David Gordon (piano), Paul Cavaciuti (drums) & Double Bass (Tbc)

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 title comes from his Trio’s 2015 album which coincided with the hundredth anniversary of Scriabin’s death and, more or less, the birth of jazz in New Orleans.

It 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

Our programmer Brina Blain says,’The bottom line is that this is as tight and hard swinging a trio as we heard anywhere last year.’

On very rare occasions when listening to the first few bars of the opening track of an album you know that what you are about to hear will be immense. This was such an occasion…. truly outstanding album.’ jazzviews.net
