  • Description

    New York's foremost pianist/composer Mark Soskin spent over a decade with Sonny Rollins before returning to his native NYC base performing and recording both as leader and sideman. Soskin brings his quartet with Rich Perry (tenor sax) here on his fourth album for SteepleChase and focuses on his new compositions as well as some of his old gems.

    "The most important thing is the promise that perhaps Soskin will now join the Steeplechase roster and continue to record regularly as others have in the past. Well produced." – Papatamus, on 'Upper West Side Stories' (SCCD31858)

    "The music in the lyrical, acoustic wide range of jazz further emphasizes the brighter sound of this Constellation...tasteful, clean and unblemished." - Ole Mathiessen, JazzSpecial on 'Everything Is Old New Again' (SCCD31890)

    Personnel: Mark Soskin (piano), Rich Perry (tenor saxophone), Jay Anderson (bass), Matt Wilson (drums)
