Album Remarks & Appraisals:
A polished and virtuosic jazz pianist, Ariel Pocock is an equally compelling vocalist, as evidenced on her stunning debut recording, Touchstone.
A fresh, interesting, and unique approach to the traditional role of the singer-pianist. Originally released independently, Touchstone spent three weeks on the JazzWeek charts in 2013. Features all-star band including Seamus Blake, Julian Lage, Larry Grenadier, and Eric Harland. Produced by Matt Pierson (Joshua Redman, Jane Monheit, Kenny Garrett).
The album is a dandy, featuring in equal measure Pocock's sinewy jazz piano and breezy vocal chops.
