Deconstruction Zone (Standards)

Fresh Sound New Talent

Ethan Iverson (p), Reid Anderson (b), Jorge Rossy (d)

Reference: FSNT-047

Bar code: 8427328420471

Iverson's first recordings for Fresh Sound are showcases for his working trio with Reid Anderson and Jorge Rossy. The originals are theatrical and the standards are treated with love and disrespect, Iverson's trio's performances are of concert hall proportions.

Press reviews

"Deconstruction Zone (Standards) is one of the best recordings of 1998."

—Peter Watrous (The New York Times)

"This exhilarating set of standards was conceived as a companion piece to Iverson's Construction Zone (Originals) and was recorded during the same two-day session. Revealing their roots in jazz tradition, pianist Iverson and his trio mates Reid Anderson (bass) and Jorge Rossy (drums) bring wit and wisdom to great old songs such as "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You," "The Song Is You," and "I'll Remember April."

Other highlights include a powerful solo piano rendition of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes," a moving version of the seldom-heard "This Nearly Was Mine" (from the show South Pacific), and rhythmically bizarre reworkings of "All of Me" and "Have You Met Miss Jones." Anderson gets far more solo room this time around, which is a considerable bonus."

—David R. Adler (All Music Guide)
