12 Summary

Sturdy jazz pianist John Hicks gives assertively accessible readings to an album's worth of Billy Strayhorn's gems on this fine trio recording. From the very well known--"Satin Doll" and "Lush Life"--to the more obscure--"Ummg," "Summary," and "Blood Count"--Hicks reveals the inner workings of Strayhorn's intricately haunted world. Aided and abetted by the understated prodding of Dwayne Dolphin on bass and Cecil Brooks III on drums, Hicks's straightforward, introspective renditions showcase the brilliance and timelessness of Strayhorn's jazz subtlety. If we think of Strayhorn's songs as the singer, Hicks effectively plays the role of an extremely supportive sideman--telling us more about the songs than about himself. This mature approach speaks volumes about John Hicks and even more about his respect for Billy Strayhorn's artistry. -- Wally Shoup
