Born: June 15, 1961
The John Hart Trio has been together for four years and in their latest CD collection, Indivisible (HEP 2008), the trio explore standards A Nightingale Sang In Berkeley Square,Single Petal Of A Rose, Blame it on My Youth plus the funky satiric Clone Me and Not in My Generation, along with six other instrumental jazz numbers. Hart is a wonderful player, confidently exploring themes with electric and acoustic guitar lines that scale the entire fretboard, along with syncopated chording/comping moments that will bring your foot to the floor more times than not. The amazing story here is that all the material for the CD was recorded in two days; most of what you hear is first takes. Having said that, if you get a chance to see the John Hart Trio live, you'll no doubt be in for a wonderful evening. Highly recommended....
