REVIEW: The Girshevich Trio, 'Algorithmic Society,' Tapestry Records >>

Jazz is no place for children. Before I get excoriated, let me elucidate: sure, jazz education is paramount. But I have no patience for the next 12-year old prodigy or 13-year old country singer or 14-year old rock'n'roller. I want wisdom in my grooves, hard-won lessons learned by life itself. In the words of WC Fields, "go away kid, you bother me." That said, 'Algorithmic Society' (Tapestry), by The Girshevich Trio, is a pleasant surprise.
