SCCD 31834 Mark Soskin “Hearts And Minds”

Pianist/composer Mark Soskin has been one of the leading players on the New York jazz scene for a number of years. Although Soskin’s name still is associated with Sonny Rollins with whom he worked more than a decade in the 80s and 90s, Mark has left his own strong footprint on performing and recording front. Soskin is also a dedicated educator currently in the faculty of Manhattan School Of Music. On this his first release from SteepleChase Mark Soskin with his favorite rhythm section presents the quintessence of piano trio jazz.

Soskin combines an always melodic approach with a rich vocabulary that draws on a wide range of influences.” (Warren Allen – AAJ)
