    Keyboardist/composer Wayne Horvitz has performed many different kinds of music in many different contexts. Rock 'n' roll-tinged avant-blowout with John Zorn's Naked City; neo-noir soundtracks for movies that haven't been made yet with his The President band; funky-groove jazz with his Zony Mash quartet; Americana-roots music with wife Robin Holcomb, and more. From the earthy to the cutting-edge, he's played it all.
    On FOREVER, he gets back to his acoustic piano roots with a fairly straight-ahead jazz album, backed by guitar, bass and drums. The ambiance of Horvitz's moody tunes and production recalls the early ECM albums of Gary Burton and John Abercrombie. The ominously-titled but infectiously lyrical "Prepaid Funeral" channels the spirits of Bill Evans and Vince Guaraldi with its genial, genteel swing. The sly, sultry Mediterranean-tinged "Capricious Midnight" recalls film composer Henry Mancini's music for the "Pink Panther" movies. Each track is rich with evocative melodies and supremely accomplished yet subdued playing--you never get the feeling anyone here is trying to "dazzle" the listener with "hot" soloing for its own sake.

  • Critic Reviews
    The Wire (4/00, p.69) - "...Horvitz and Lowe unplugged, while the distinctive Zony Mash sound centers on his Hammond B-3 and other eclectic instruments. On piano, Horvitz is economical yet lyrical...constantly working small surprises..."
    CMJ (3/13/00, p.31) - "...offers some of the most intriguing and unique music that you'll ever hear all year. Also listen for Timothy Young's uncannily Bill Frisell-ish guitar work."
    Down Beat (7/00, pp.77-8) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Finds the group exploring the austere settings of the early '60s jazz impressionists..."
    JazzTimes (10/00, pp.96-7) - "...Conjures Keith Jarrett's pianistic landscapes, with a hint of [Bill] Frisell's pastoralism....the most beatific melodies you'll hear this year."
