Billy Test Trio: Coming Down Roses

Billy Test Trio CD Cover
Pianist and composer Billy Test brings together his team of bassist Evan Gregor and drummer Ian Froman to mix originals with a couple standards to display his impressionistic chops. He gives hint to an influence from Bill Evans with some clever harmonics over the nimble work of Gregor and Froman on ”All Of You” and is in a  pastel mood on his own “Belonging”. You get some nice stick work by Froman as he introduces the nimble “Hardly” and Gregor is stately opening the stately “The Prince” and soloing around the clever interplay with Froman on “Coming Down Roses” . Test is dreamy over the cymbals for “Fate” and gets a chance to show his lyricism in solo form on the luminous “Empty Spaces”. Peaceful pieces.
