After a seven year hiatus from performing and touring Hal Galper reemerges with his new CD “Agents Of Change.” With bassist Tony Marino and drummer Billy Mintz he has created a radical departure from his previous recordings.
Playing in what is called the “Rubato“ style, they have fashioned an unique approach to interpreting an eclectic mix that includes three Galper originals “Waiting For Chet,” “Sonar,” and “Liquid Audio,” as well as unexpected versions of the Tin Pan Alley evergreens “How Deep Is The Ocean, and “On Green Dolphin Street. A super-melodic version of Wayne Shorter’s “E.S.P.” opens the album and tucked away in the middle of it all is their rendering of the old Swedish folk tune “Dear Old Stockholm.”
