I'll Be Home For Christmas
Fred Hughes CD, I’ll Be Home for Christmas is a fantastic release. The CD features Fred Hughes on piano, Amy Shook (upright bass) and Frank Russo (drums). Hughes piano style has a clear rhythmic articulation and hard bop influence with a bright swinging feeling. He solos with a strong vocabulary of bebop and soulful blues melodies and always makes an impactful statement. The trio works well together and there's no questioning either their inventiveness or the richness of their playing. The variety of styles is good and will add to the holiday season. Highly Recommended.
