SOUL FOOD, the delicious new album from Cyrus Chestnut, might well be the acclaimed pianist’s most succulent dish yet. From the gorgeous simplicity of his solo piano rendition of “Swing Low Sweet Chariot,” to the classic trio swing of “Fantasia,” the album is a lip-smacking musical buffet encompassing an array of flavors such as gospel, R&B, and good old fashioned jazz.
Chestnut is accompanied by an equally tasty lineup of players, including bassist Christian McBride, drummer Lewis Nash, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, trumpeter Marcus Printup, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, alto saxophonist Gary Bartz, and labelmate James Carter on tenor sax. His seventh Atlantic release – and first collection of original material since 1998 – Cyrus Chestnut’s SOUL FOOD is the ideal recipe for a homecooked musical feast. ~Editorial Review | Amazon
