We hear a lot about interpretation in Jazz. But who better to interpret an original composition that the musician who conceived and wrote it? That's what pianist and composer Alan Simon has done with his latest album. He plays and presents several of his own originals and has invited his various musical colleagues who also contributed tunes to this project to join in playing them as well. Things not only hang together nicely here but nicely flow from tune to tune as well. Much of that is due to Simon's playing and his skillful sequencing of the tracks. The title tune, for example, has a gently melodic feel and is played by a quartet. It's immediately followed by a more intense bop number featuring the guitar and two horns. But the tune opens with the baritone sax laying down long, flowing lines and concludes with Simon's piano solo...which he follows with a solo piano track of his own that leads into a Latin Jazz piece with Simon taking the opening solo, only this tim! e pounding out some Latin piano chords. The album title alludes to the present as in a moment in time. But it's https://www.tradebit.comon's skill in presenting the album's music that makes the difference in the time you'll spend listening to it.
