Pianist Matt Herskowitz brings melodicism and a modern classical approach to a wide variety of lyrical songs. The melding of jazz and classical works well, with a rich and stately read of “My One And Only Love” and a wondrous “Ballade” as a strong dynamic range is heard on “Tribute to John Coates.” Elliptical impressions of Eric Satie take place on ”Gnossienne No 1/Moment Musical No. 3” with “Pianio Concerto In G: Adagio Assai” reflecting a strong Chopin romantic touch. Flowing and thoughtful.
