FORMAN, BRUCE
$14.98
Still of The Night

GSPs re-issue of Still of the Night uncovers a jazz gem. This disc sparkles with a cool fire, showcasing jazz guitarist Bruce Formans dazzling improvisational style. Forman and trio-mates, John Clayton Jr. (bass) and Albert Tootie Heath (drums), offer-up a positively-charged mix of straight-ahead jazz standards and original compositions.

Guitar Players Jim Ferguson observes, the trio environment of Still of The Night allows Forman to demonstrate his considerable improvisational abilities. Best known for his aggressiveness, chance-taking, and technical brilliancehe has another more subtle side, featuring a refined melodic sense, faultless time, a sophisticated harmonic concept, and compositional command. Combined, these elements are a powerful forcethe stuff of which a worldclass jazz musician and one of the planets finest guitarists is made.

Bruce Formans Still of the Night was originally released on the Kamei Recordings label in 1991.

REVIEWS and QUOTES
Forman, at his most sensitive and insightful on this album, has fashioned what may become a classic jazz guitar recording. This disc is full of hidden surprises like that, with a 3 a.m. beauty that makes it irresistible. Pristine recording, too. If youre into mainstream, no-gimmicks jazz, this is a must.  John Baxter, Option Magazine

Its a richly varied and musically rewarding disc. Jazz guitar admirers and mainstream listeners in general are advised to look for this excellent disc.  Carl Baugher, Cadence Magazine

This disk is a stone killer. These guys lock in so well together its scary& At times the playing is astonishingyou listen, shake your head in disbelief, and say to yourself in amazement, How do they do it? Whether uptempo burners or flowing, lyrical ballads, the music attains the highest level possible: It absorbs you in an emotionally involving manner. The playing is so superlative, and Bruce Formans sound, musical excellence, and command of his guitar is so superb, youll be reveling in the music& The best new jazz release Ive heard in a long, long time.  Frank Doris, The Absolute Sound
