Title - Blue Shift
Artist - In Real Time
For those unaware, pianist and singer Carol Liebowitz brings a uniquely expressive and personal sound to the jazz and free improvisation scene.
After focusing on classical repertoire at the High School of Performing Arts and NYU, her musical direction turned to improvisation and she began studying with Connie Crothers.
Other influential teachers have included Sal Mosca, Jay Clayton and Sheila Jordan.
She has also performed in Europe and throughout the New York City metropolitan area in venues such as Roulette, The Stone, Cornelia Street Cafe, IBeam, The Firehouse Space, Arts for Art, Spectrum, Galapagos and Birdland.
The piano/bass/drums trio IN REAL TIME with Adam Lane and Andrew Drury will release their debut recording Blue Shift on Line Art Records in late December.
1. Crosstown (8:15)
2. Curve (11:08)
3. Blue Shift (6:12)
4. Sequoia Moon (8:06)
5. Passacaglia (12:04)
This quite breathtakingly translucent new album opens on the organic growth and liberation of rhythms and melodies found within Crosstown and then the industrially earthy ambiance of the immense Curve, before backing those up with the more serenely sculptured title track Blue Shift, the album rounding out on the statically charged resonance of Sequoia Moon, coming to a righteous close on the beveled, yet free flowing harmonies found within the opus Passacaglia.
Furthermore, Carol also has two releases on the New Artists label: Waves of Blue Intensities, a duo with tenor saxophonist Bob Field, and Time on My Hands, a voice and guitar duo with Andy Fite.
