  • Bassist David Finck has impressed audiences for decades as an accompanist to such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Tony Bennett, and Paquito d'Rivera, among others. On Future Day, his debut recording as leader of the David Finck Quartet, his bass playing is imaginative and filled with tasteful intuitive improvisations. Joined by such innovative musicians as Joe Locke, Tom Ranier, and Joe LaBarbara, this quartet focuses on music that defines Finck's love affair with jazz. The set opens with Ranier's prowling, low-down groove called "I Know." Joe Locke's carefully considered solo swings with harmony and the impressive blues influences of vibraphonists Milt Jackson and Bobby Hutcherson. Ranier's piano magic is expressive and melodic, filling the song with soulful nuance and intelligent musical conversations. "New Valley," a David Finck original jazz waltz, spotlights Finck's finesse and lyricism in one concise chorus. "Nature Boy," is freshened up in a new time signature and played in 5/4. However, these fresh changes don't spoil the beautiful, moody qualities of this all-time jazz gem. Trumpeter Jeremy Pelt and saxophonist Bob Sheppard are special guests on "Four Flags," a high-speed burner that manages to stay very cool, while by contrast, the beautiful and tranquil ballad "For All We Know" is a constant reminder to live life to the fullest because for all we know...it could be your last. Locke's insightful soloing takes you deeper into the true meaning of the song via his remarkable technical virtuosity. While David Finck's woodsy tone, flawless intonation, and brilliant timing and delivery add major credibility to his leadership, the overall stellar interplay of the musicians and the brilliant arrangements of these compositions are what make Future Day a must have for any serious jazz collector. ~ Paula Edelstein
Professional Reviews
JazzTimes (p.100) - "Finck's engaging jazz waltz 'New Valley' is a breezy number right out of the Vince Guaraldi book while the quartet's inventive 5/4 take on 'Nature Boy' puts a new spin on that haunting classic ballad."
