A certain naturalism and hard-earned grace run through the compositions and playing of Cyrus Chestnut, the Baltimore-bred modern-mainstream player best known for his work as a resourceful solo pianist and dynamic ensemble leader. Those qualities shine through again on A MILLION COLORS IN YOUR MIND, his first recording as a leader on the HighNote label.
Gospel-blues shades color several pieces and Chestnut slides easily from lush Art Tatum-like voicings to austere single note statements, from Powell-like flurries of scales to two-handed forays into Jaki Byard territories. With bassist David Williams, whose tenure with the late Cedar Walton makes him the perfect choice for a piano trio, and drummer Victor Lewis, Cryus delivers ten great tunes and puts his own unique spin on all of them. HighNote Records is extremely proud to welcome Cyrus Chestnut to its exclusive roster of artists.
