The Wrong Waltz is an album of original compositions for piano trio, featuring Lynn Seaton on acoustic bass, Ed Soph on drums, and Gabe Evens on piano. The wide variety of styles reflects a love for jazz from its inception through bebop, hard-bop, fusion, and modal genres. The music is lyrical, takes unexpected twists and turns, conveys a strong mood, and feels great.
Grammy award winner bassist Lynn Seaton and Percussive Arts Society Hall of Fame drummer Ed Soph are master jazz musicians who infuse the music with their creativity and positive energy. Their confident and sensitive accompaniment gives a distinct, interesting flavor to each composition.
In his sixth album of original jazz, Gabe Evens creates something enjoyable for all music lovers.
