A gorgeous outlier in the FMP catalog, this solo piano album by Curtis Clark traffics in blues and ballads. Clark – who plays with David Murray – mines the African American jazz tradition for his own purposes, unfurling pieces of voluptuous melancholy, sly dissonance, and spiky blues. From an inventive take on Duke Ellington’s “Sophisticated Lady” to the keening hesitations of “Self Trait,” this understated gem offers many moments of unadulterated pleasure.
