Here Comes the Nice Guy Trio Here Comes the Nice Guy Trio CD (2009)

Nice Guy Trio music CDs The accordion has been a much maligned instrument, though in the right hands it is very useful in a jazz setting. The Nice Guy Trio consist of trumpeter Darren Johnston, bassist Daniel Fabricant, and accordion player Rob Reich, while the band is augmented by additional musicians on seven of the 11 tracks on its debut CD. Pedal steel guitarist David Phillips has the opening solo in a sensational reinvention of Charles Mingus' hilarious "Fables of Faubus," which mixes elements of country and cabaret with post-bop in their humorous but swinging send-up of the composition written in response to the then-Arkansas governor's racist behavior. The trio's spirited take of free jazz composer Ornette Coleman's "Folk Tales" captures the essence of the saxophonist's piece while giving it a very different sound. The remaining tracks are originals by members of the trio, highlighted by the Gyspy-meets-India flavor of Johnston's "Apples," which adds Sameer Gupta on tabla, along with Reich's infectious "Unicycle Cocek," adding percussionist Aaron Keirbel, which sounds like traditional Jewish music adapted into world jazz. This debut CD is a promising session by the Nice Guy Trio, who make a fine effort to cut through the outpouring of run-of-the-mill predictable jazz flooding the marketplace. ~ Ken Dryden With its debut album "Here Comes The Nice Guy Trio," San Francisco's Nice Guy Trio delivers a startling beautiful, omnivorous statement. Founded in early 2008 by powerhouse trumpeter Darren Johnston, the group features accordion ace Rob Reich and well tr Recording information: New Improved Recordings. Illustrator: Aaron Novik.
