SCCD 31790 Stanley Cowell Trio “Are You Real?”

Stanley Cowell during the last five decades has not only been active on the jazz scene but also devoted himself in the musical education of younger generation.

Now his well-earned retirement from teaching at the Rutgers enables him to spend more time in performing and recording. The latest album, which is his 13th release on this label, Stanley Cowell presents himself as a supreme interpreter of jazz’s standard titles.

“…it’s a great pleasure to hear Stanley Cowell’s It’s Time: a finely crafted collection of mostly originals that is at once sophisticated, both aggressive and pensive, and simply fascinating to listen to.” (Greg Simmons – AJJ on “It’s Time” SCCD 317 40)
