Ed Cherry
It’s All Good

On this all-standards program, guitarist Ed Cherry leads a crack trio (including the great organist Pat Bianchi and drummer Byron Landham) through a nice variety of tunes both familiar (“You Don’t Know What Love Is,” “In a Sentimental Mood”) and less so (Duke Pearson’s “Christo Redentor,” Wayne Shorter’s “Deluge”). What you immediately notice about this album is how gentle and subdued the mood is–especially for an organ trio record. Normally this format leads to lots of funky shouting, but these guys are working in a much more restrained style and the result is truly lovely. It’s not to say that they don’t groove deep and swing hard–they do both. But they do so in a way that I can only characterize as “grown-up.” Very, very nice.
