|JazzReview.Com: Uri Caine has arrived!!! Well, he’s been among us all along, tinkling the ivories with Dave Douglas, Don Byron and Skip Heller, to name but three. But now: ah, the man’s got an album recorded at the world’s jazz Mecca, NYC's the Village Vanguard -- that’s why he’s “arrived.” And he’s got the goods, too: a winning piano style that’s mercurial like Herbie Hancock, percussive like Dave Brubeck, funky like Bobby Timmons, delicate like early 1970s Chick Corea, explosive like Matthew Shipp, and he’s ably assisted by the solid, inspired bass of Drew Gress and the sophisticated sizzle & thunder of Ben Perowski. The UC3 put a brand-new set of clothes on the overworked standards “All The Way” and (especially) “I Thought About You,” the latter getting a jaunty, Thelonious Monk-ish blue/stride treatment. This set is mostly originals, though, the most obvious highlight being the shot of aural caffeine that is “Stiletto.” Riveting swing, immediate tunes, creatively edgy yet cohesive – what else do you need from a Modern Jazz Album? If you’ve not availed yourself of Mr. Caine’s ace pianism already, Village Vanguard is a great place to start.
