about

Having previously written for big bands "Suburban Gorillas", "New Perspectives", "The Vortex Foundation Big Band" and a quintet, "Lunar Spell"; Andrea now takes on the challenge of the piano trio. The music is a combination of Andrea Vicari's "atmospheric and original" (TIME OUT) compositions, and her unique arrangements of classic jazz standards; including "Bewitched", "Fly Me to the Moon", and "Someday My Prince will Come". The trio features brilliant virtuoso drummer Sebastian Rochford, an integral member of "Acoustic Ladyland" whose own group "Polar Bear" is making waves with their CD on Babel "Dim Lit". Seb won the BBC Jazz award in the "Rising Star" category.

Reviews

"irresistibly catchy" The Observer

"Beautiful, Excellent CD !!!" Jens Jørn Gjedsted, Denmarks Radio

ANDREA VICARI Tryptych (33JAZZ099)
"Pianist Vicari doesn't make it into Chilton's British Who's-Who but deserved to on the evidence of this well-crafted and uplifting set. Combining with bassist Dorian Lockett and Seb Rochford (drums} she sets out on a programme of originals and standards, coming up trumps initially on 'Gaudi', Rochford's splashy shading adding to the colour of the piece. Vicari gives 'Bewitched' a fresh lick of paint, the theme harmonised, before she digs in and then does much the same with Cole Porter's 'l Love You'. This and her own 'Coming of Age' are highlights, the latter moving from Evans-like calm into a fevered sequence whose drive and momentum bring to mind the late Hampton Hawes at his best. Still, there's little need to overplay such comparisons since all these tracks offer ample testimony to Vicari's refreshing fusion of creativity and command" JAZZ UK

"Once you have heard Andrea Vicari, you could probably pick her out from a dozen of her contemporary pianists, mainly by the precision and clarity of her touch. She improvises such lucid lines and brightly voiced chords that you can't help following her train of thought. The programme here is roughly half-and-half standards and originals, and it says a lot for her composing that both come out sounding equally melodic. There is one particularly beautiful piece, called 'When Did the World Become Colour?' Some of the rhythm patterns set up with bassist Dorian Lockett and drummer Sebastian Rochford are irresistibly catchy, and the interplay among the three is hugely inventive" The Observer
