Ryo Fukui – Ryo Fukui In New York
7 in stock
A confident touch, a swing with a core, and a feeling of dynamism. Ryo Fukui who arrived in New York approaches Barp Harris's essence with Barry Harris's rhythm team, who he says is his teacher.
Ryo Fukui who passed away in 2016 with only 5 works left. This work is the 4th work recorded in 1999. This was the first analogization of a work released only on CD at that time.
Recorded in New York with Barry Harris's rhythm team Lyle Atkinson (bass) and Leroy Williams (drums), which he said to be his teacher, this work is a wonderful work that conveys the charm of Fukui as a Bop pianist. The selection and composition of songs centered on the standard, and of course, their enthusiasm and power for playing. A solid touch full of conviction, a feeling of swing with a core and elasticity, and emotion and poetry that ooze in dynamism. It's a lively sound that makes you feel the breath and will of Fukui. I am happy that the representative song “Mellow Dream” will be replayed.
