Criss Cross Jazz 1208 CD
David Kikoski Trio
One of the more ideal ensemble combinations in jazz is the piano trio, with
David Kikoski serving as a major proponent of the genre.
For his fourth Criss Cross album to date
Kikoski leads a powerhouse trio with bassist
James Genus and master-drummer Jeff 'Tain' Watts.
Surf's Up is easily Kikoski's
best to date, giving him space to romp through a diverse
set of tunes covering everthing from Brazilian sambas to pop masterpieces by
Frank Zappa and Brian Wilson.
