Rick Bishop: What 4 CD Review by Lucky Clark- Rick Bishop Offers Topnotch Jazz CD Reviewer: Kennebec Journal & Morning Sentinel More than 10 years ago I brought a new album by an old favorite to your attention when I interviewed Rick Bishop about his then new release, “From The Inside.” It's with great pleasure that I bring his latest CD, “What 4,” into the spotlight. This jazz album is aliberal helping of various styles presented in an accessible way with Bishop's tasteful, tasty bass augmented with guitar (Tom Hoffman, Steve Blum, Larry Vigneault, Bishop),sax (Marshall DeMott, Will Bartlett, Chris White), piano Terry Eisen, Chris Houston)and drums (Tim Osborne, Peter Runnels, Bob Bilideau, Tim Gaynes). It's that rich variety of sounds and styles that keeps the 12 tracks interesting and exciting- I love it when you don't know what is going to come out of your speakers next. In my humble opinion, that's what makes a great album, and it also shows he depth of Bishop's talent and compositional poise. From a swinging live track(”Tony Bologna”) to a delightful introspection (Jean's Dream') to the haunting epic closing track (”Improv”),this album definitely deserves an in-depth listening- especially if you enjoy challenging, yet entertaining jazz. Now hopefully, we won't have to wait another 10 years for the next installment from this soft-spoken musician.Record Label: P.E.P Records...
