Isn't Art It! album for sale Product Description
"Little displays deep understanding of Jazz's mainstream modes. Isn't Art It! CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs.
Classicism slip through too." Jazz Times
Jazz Pianist, arranger, composer, recording artist: these words define this extraordinary musician... and his talents. He brings acoustic, straight-ahead jazz into the future with contemporary chordings and fresh arrangements.
Jazziz describes his style as likable "modem mainstream." asked to describe his own music, Little shifts the focus to other musicians who especially move him: Rachmaninoff, Mozart, Bill Evans (with whom he studied), Hampton Hawes, Martial Solal, Steve Kuhn, Keith Jarrett, Jaki Byard... Horowitz. "I give up on trying to tell you how my group sounds," he says, "but I can tell you that it's way beyond technique. When it's right I feel liberated, free to play the cards as they fall, to let the spirit move through me. That's why I play music." While he plays,gospel,blues,pop,country and western equally well, he prefers jazz because it is,in his words, "music with spirit." Perhaps his attraction to the spirit of jazz is so strong because his musical foundation was established "in the church" in Amarillo,Texas,where he was born and raised.
Little began piano lessons at the age of four,studying with the director of his church choir. Mastering the music quickly,he played by rote and then,flying in the face of tradition,he expanded with his own versions. ...See Full Description
