FRESH SOUND RECORDS RELEASES BLACKOUT CONCEPTION, JAZZ PIANIST/COMPOSER JOHN CHIN’S DEBUT ALBUM
*Acoustic post-bop recording features Mark Turner on tenor sax, Alexis Cuadrado or Chris Higgins on upright bass and Bill Campbell on drums*
Fresh Sound/New Talent Records announces the January 15, 2008 release of John Chin’s debut album, Blackout Conception, a highly melodic effort that underscores the Brooklyn resident’s talents as not only an acoustic pianist, but also, as a producer (Chin produced Blackout Conception with bassist Alexis Cuadrado), group leader and composer. Three of the seven tracks on Blackout Conception are Chin originals: the dusky title track, the melancholy “I Won’t Argue with You” and the contemplative “After Crash.” Other highlights of the album, which illustrates the warm and lyrical nature of Chin’s pianism, include the improviser’s thoughtful interpretations of Leonard Bernstein’s “Some Other Time,” Billy Strayhorn’s “Passion Flower” and two pieces by veteran pianist Kenny Barron: “Lullaby” and “Joanne Julia.” Jordi Pujol, president of Barcelona-based Fresh Sound, serves as Blackout Conception’s executive producer....
