Juan Galiardo by Juan Galiardo
Released: Jan 2012
Label: New Steps
A veteran of the jazz fusion outfit Satya Project, Spanish pianist Juan Galiardo's debut as a bandleader suggests he can hold his own in the context of acoustic jazz, as a player and composer. His crackling small group (with drummer Andrea Michelutti, bassist Dave Santoro, tenor player Jerry Bergonzi and trumpeter Joe Magnarelli) plays with a warm, focused sound on up-tempo tunes like "Blues for Dave" and the swinging waltz "Otaru Souko," which sounds like a lost Hank Mobley side.
