Coming Down Roses by the Billy Test Trio is a wonderful musical ride. The recording colorfully mixes beautiful winding ballads with straight-ahead swing tunes in a lovely display of collective and individual artistry. The unit is lead by Billy Test on piano, Evan Gregor on bass, and Ian Froman on drums. The setlist highlights Test’s gifts as a writer and arranging, by primarily featuring a collection of his original works, the exceptions are tunes by Cole Porter and John Coates, Jr. It’s a fantastic production and a thoroughly entertaining work of compelling musical acumen and interplay.
