Pianist Kenny Barron celebrates his 75th birthday with his Blue Note debut, 2018's sophisticated quintet album, Concentric Circles. An 11-time Grammy-nominated artist, Barron is a journeyman performer with over five decades of highly regarded work under his belt, including stints with titans like Dizzy Gillespie, James Moody, Stan Getz, and many others. He brings all of that experience to bear here with a largely original set of swinging, harmonically nuanced compositions. Backing him are his longtime bandmates bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa and drummer Johnathan Blake, along with added quintet members trumpeter Mike Rodriguez and saxophonist Dayna Stephens.

Concentric Circles is now Barron's first true quintet publication since Images. Kenny Barron presents not only his latest quintet, but also some of his own original compositions never before recorded by him. He opens with "DPW", a brisk hard-bop number, in which he pays tribute to the Brooklyn neighborhood of Ditmas Park West, where he is at home today. With the melody and its urban harmonies played in unison by trumpet and tenorsax, this 2013 song is reminiscent of the classics known from Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers or the Miles Davis Quintet of the mid-sixties. With "Concentric Circles," Kenny Barron, who turns 75 in June, underscores that he does not intend to rest on his laurels. Because as he shows on this album with eight own compositions and three fabulous interpretations, he still has a lot to tell his audience. Tracklist: 01. DPW 04:51 02. Concentric Circles 07:26 03.
There’s no such thing as a typical Barron composition. All but three of these 11 pieces are his, and they vary from the deceptively simple waltz-time of the title track to a jagged and disconcerting number called Von Hangman. But what they do all have in common is a rhythmic and harmonic structure that invites imaginative improvisation. Trumpeter Mike Rodriguez and saxophonist Dayna Stephens respond impressively, and Barron’s own solos are as expansive and surprising as ever. The final track is a wonderfully discursive solo piano version of Thelonious Monk’s Reflections
