Erskine New Trio represents the latest evolution in
Peter's musical journey exploring the more intimate
realms of improvised music. Pianist and arranger
Vardan Ovsepian may prove to be the hottest jazz
keyboard discovery in a long time, while electric
bassist Damian Erskine (Peter's nephew) brings new
luster to the family name. With gorgeous graphics by
designer Bob Smith, "Joy Luck" is a joy to behold
and hear. The album sports originals, plus covers of
tunes by Vince Mendoza, Bob James and Jerry
Goldsmith. The album's single is "Joy Luck Club,"
penned by Peter and it features all three players,
including Erskine's marimba-playing debut! Like
other Fuzzy Music releases, the audio quality is
superb and the music is fresh. While the esthetic
standard is uncompromising, this will prove to be
one of the more listener-friendly Fuzzy titles.
