Overview

Werner "Vana" Gierig is a fine pianist who in 2003 toured as a member of violinist Regina Carter's group. This set mostly features his trio with bassist Sean Conly and drummer Alvester Garnett, but has a guest appearance by Carter on "Gatinha Sabidinha" and occasional spots for percussionists, trombonist Christophe Schweizer (whose horn is just used for atmosphere), and background vocalists, particularly on the more Brazilian-oriented pieces like "Mating Call." Although the singalong near the end of "A New Day" (a tune based on "In a Mellow Tone") is likable, in reality none of the guests is really needed. The most rewarding selections showcase the trio, including the hard boppish "Low Features," the sensitive ballad "An Awakening Thought," "That's All," and the brief but driving "Moving On."
