Frank Hailey Eric Zukoski Trio

Though the Frank-Hailey Eric Zukoski Trio’s last album, “Passing It Around”, can still heard on rotation on radio, TV, and multiple compilations, after seven years, this Texas trio was itching to record another. The result, “An Old Sweet Song”, named by Jazzlines (National Public Radio) as one of the ten best instrumental jazz recordings of 2008, is a concept album that features soulful, groove heavy jazz interpretations of popular compositions not normally associated with the jazz genre, ranging from the likes of Strauss’ Blue Danube Waltz to Maria Muldauer’s Midnight At The Oasis.

”If you’re a casual jazz fan or a guru…you should hear An Old Sweet Song by The Frank Hailey-Eric Zukoski Trio. These guys groove man and there are some great piano tracks on this release. Some of my faves are Go Tell It On The Mountain, Midnight At The Oasis, and Georgia On My Mind.” Uncle T's Rants & Raves. NYC, 2009. “Hailey is a cousin of seminal jazz pianist and composer Cedar Walton. But as this CD amply illustrates, Hailey need not invoke the reputation of his well- known relative to gain recognition, revealing he is a fine piano performer in his own right. . . Hopefully this initial outing is the forerunner of more albums in the future.” All About Jazz.
