Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Spike Wilner Trio: Live at Smalls is the pianist's second release on the SmallsLIVE label. Wilner's improvisation and compositional depth is reminiscent of jazz masters of the 40s and 50s. Wilner has played and recorded with many of today's world class improvisers and has also toured extensively throughout Europe with the Artie Shaw Orchestra, the Glenn Miller Orchestra and his own trio. On this superb set recorded in January of 2014, Wilner is joined by guitarist Yotam Silberstein and long-time friend and bassist, Paul Gill.
