New Music by Christian Sands, Walter Smith III, Kneebody and More, in Take Five


Last year, pianist Christian Sands released an album aptly titled Reach. Among other things, it was a demonstration of that very idea, showcasing Sands’ flexibilities of intention and style. Now there’s a new EP on the horizon that seems likely to expand the canvas still farther, judging by this track, an exclusive premiere.

As on Reach, “J Street” features Sands’ smart trio with Yasushi Nakamura on bass and Marcus Baylor on drums. They’re swinging bright and brisk, with an alert attunement to some nifty syncopations in the tune. So it’s worth noting that this Thursday, Sands will lead a slightly different trio (with Nakamura and drummer Jerome Jennings) in two sets at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Their repertoire will focus on material associated with Erroll Garner, befitting Sands’ new position as creative ambassador and co-producer of the Erroll Garner Jazz Project. (As you may recall, Sands paid sparkling tribute to Garner in a WBGO Yamaha Salon Concert.)
