Frank Locrasto Discography of CDs

Associated with: Jeremy Pelt

When You're There When You're There CD (2006) 5 stars
CD $15.89 Buy It  Details
MP3 $10.89 Buy It  Details
Frank Locrasto albums Frank LoCrasto is a fine pianist but the music on his CD When You're There is, unfortunately, quite forgettable. The themes range from poppish to new age-style vamps, the arrangements (particularly those with a string section) are sleepy, and nothing all that memorable occurs. Chris Cheek's occasional sax solos are fine (he recalls Stan Getz a bit tone-wise on "Going Home"), and LoCrasto has excellent technique on piano, but the material is just not up to the level of their playing. There are instances where the ensembles are a little reminiscent of Herbie Hancock's '60s work, but those moments are fleeting and overshadowed by periods of meandering melancholy . With better material, this would have been a much more rewarding effort. ~ Scott Yanow Lyricist: Becca Stevens.

Identity Identity CD (2005) 4 stars
CD $15.89 Buy It  Details
MP3 $10.89 Buy It  Details
Frank Locrasto CD discography Jeremy Pelt is a very talented trumpeter with a large sound and a creative style influenced by Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw. On Identity, the music ranges from early-'70s Miles Davis-type fusion ("Eye of the Beholder" and "Scorpio") to a fiery tradeoff with vibraphonist Warren Wolf ("Angular"), from moody ballads with lots of space and Pelt's muted horn to post-bop romps. Joined by a rhythm section that includes the many keyboards of Frank LoCrasto with occasional contributions from Wolf and Myron Walden on soprano and bass clarinet, Pelt is the main star throughout this project. None of his ten originals are destined to become standards in the future, but his playing ...
Shock Value: Live at Smoke Shock Value: Live at Smoke CD (2007) 5 stars
CD $15.89 Buy It  Details
MP3 $10.89 Buy It  Details
Frank Locrasto albums Some of the material heard on Shock Value had been in the Jeremy Pelt live catalog years before it were released on this album, while two of the songs ("Scorpio" and "Suspicion") were performed on his previous album, Identity. The former album was Pelt's first studio foray into electric jazz, having stayed straight acoustic on his first three albums. Shock Value, performed with his latest band, Wired, dives deeper into today's version of jazz fusion, although the end product bears a sound that fraternizes more closely with early-'70s Miles Davis than, say, Nicholas Payton's Sonic Trance. The title is a phrase for the reaction (shock) that Pelt said ...
Wilderness Wilderness CD (2009)
CD Check Availability  Details Digipak
Frank Locrasto music CDs Recorded at multiple locations and with collaborators, but partly alone in his Brooklyn apartment, Josh Mease's full-length debut, Wilderness, demonstrates his aptitude for both writing melody and for generating rich sounds with seemingly simple components. The soft-spoken swinger "White Diamonds," for example, opens sparsely with brushed snare, bassline, and a sequence of single notes on acoustic guitar. The instrumentation increases but maintains simple lines, ...
