James Carney Trio
The pianist's horn bands are cagey and seductive, but sometimes they hide the beauty of his keyboard work. This trio with drummer Tom Rainey and bassist Mark Helias should put those skills right up front. There's a sweet fluidity to Carney's approach, and even the knottiest moments enjoy a certain flow. It's a shared bill with percussionist Ches Smith's trio, another engaging outfit that puts a premium on forward motion.
