Stop The Music

Pianist Joel Forrester, best known for his work with the Microscopic Septet and now leader of People Like Us, makes his solo debut on this session from last February. All but two of the 13 cuts are Joel’s and they are as quirky as his playing. Among them are a beauty of a ballad, “The Day That You Forgave Me,” the boogie-flavoured “Back Talk” and the silent movie-inspired “Lunacy”. Great listening! 9/10

– Len Dobbin (Montreal Mirror, Feb. 5, 1998)

* Featuring the theme from NPR’s “Fresh Air with Terri Gross”, composed by Joel Forrester
