    DAVID HAZELTINE TRIO Alice in Wonderland on 180-gram vinyl packaged with obi-strip!

    David Hazeltine is a major pianist working both in New York and Japan, and a seasoned performer who's been playing gigs since he was 13. He did not seriously consider going into music until right before college. Once he entered into the jazz world he was encouraged by Chet Baker who told him to go to New York. He has played and recorded with Jon Hendricks, Louis Hayes, and One For All. Although he is a pianist he feels more influenced by saxophonists, particularly Charlie Parker.

    Hazeltine, in the tradition of Parker, works within and across the constrains of bebop, and arcs toward the aesthetic of consonance rather than dissonance: reaching toward beauty in harmony, melody, rhythm and never straying too deeply from his roots. He is particularly influenced by Parker, Rollins, Bud Powell and early Miles Davis. Although seemingly hard-line about the tradition, Hazeltine has done an impressive amount of innovation and is a gifted arranger and composer.

    Hazeltine is joined on this release by George Mraz on bass and Billy Drummond on drums.
