Capable of everything from vibrato-laden intimate murmurings to sermonizing at a roaring volume, the jazz organ can sometimes be strangely dispiriting — like being stuck at a bar with a non-stop talker. PAT BIANCHI will have none of that, eschewing all the clichés and displaying the instrument's versatility with a setlist that ranges from Chick Corea to Patsy Cline to Monk and Billy Eckstine. For this, Bianchi's first recording on Savant, the leader has brought along a number of friends and colleagues including PAT MARTINO, JOE LOCKE, CARMEN INTORRE JR., the late, lamented KEVIN MAHOGANY and others, making for an extra-special debut recording.
