SCCD 31791 Peter Zak Trio “The Disciple”

Peter Zak on this his 10th album reveals his thoughts on jazz compositions by writing his own liner notes, which makes quite an interesting read as a bonus to the strong music embodied here.

“…Zak’s originals have the strengths to become jazz standards themselves .” (Ken Dryden – the NYC Jazz Records on The Disciple SCCD 31791)

Pianist Peter Zak and his superb trio went into the studio to swing on Down East, and swing they did…. Zak’s beautiful way with a melody comes to the forefront .” (Dan McClenaghan – AAJ on Down East SCCD 31715)

To “get” Zak, you have to pay close attention. The surfaces of his music seem conventional until you notice how imaginatively his improvisations are developed, and how intelligently they tie. Zak invariably comes upon lovely notes you never anticipated .” (Thomas Conrad – JazzTimes on Seed Of Sin SCCD 31641)
