The great thing about jazz is how difficult it is to define -the great conflation of European music with rhythms from the African diaspora, etc., etc.... Jazz lovers come to the music from all directions, placing it on the pedestal of high art and relegating it to the booze soaked floors of sad forgotten nightclubs. Jazz critic Joachim Berendt suggests that jazz has a "special relationship to time," "a spontaneity and vitality of musical production in which improvisation plays a role"; and "sonority and manner of phrasing which mirror the individuality of the performing jazz musician." The Paul Abella Trio manifests this ideal - atypical and surprising in their choice of material: aberrant choices that will perhaps speak to better audiences nursed on Zeppelin, the Dead, and the Talking Heads, than those of us who would fall in step behind Duke, Satchmo, Ol' Blue Eyes, the First Lady of Song and all their friends from Tin Pan Alley. Fortunately for me, I've always gone both ways (so to speak) and hearing PAT live was fresh, fun and made me want to mosh (I mean that in the best possible way.) So drink up all you people, order anything you want - and get yourself a dose of the Paul Abella Trio while you're at it.
