Bright Light Review - JazzWax.com
Mark Sherman—Bright Light (Audiophile Society). Mark Sherman is a superb pianist, vibraphonist and educator. On Bright Light, he teams up with trumpeter and flugelhornist Joe Magnarelli, bassist Dean Johnson and drummer Tim Horner. Mark's seven originals are exquisite, as are the other three, including the standard Cry Me a River. Mark swings with taste and grace, and with Mags on horn, it's a perfect, lyrical combination. Mark is one of those pianists I could listen to all day. Mags, too. Plus Johnson and Horner are terrific drivers and time-keepers, not to mention elegant soloists. This quartet is one tight, pretty package.
