Low Standards

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Paula Edelstein
Low Standards is a relaxed session of instrumental and vocal jazz with the laid-back vibe of lounge music, achieved through instrumental technique without remixing or studio gimmickry. With Steve Shapiro at the helm playing vibes, producing, and arranging, the accompaniment he gets from guitarist Pat Bergeson, Annie Sellick on vocals, Scott Kreitzer on tenor saxophone, Doug Weiss on bass, and Jeff Williams on drums is not only warm and tasteful, but is filled with the kind of retro-cool in-the-pocket grooves that will have listeners poised for more of Shapiro's triple-threat musicality. Sellick's icy-cool voice and soft-chic approach has that late-night feel that blends...

Low Standards is a relaxed session of instrumental and vocal jazz with the laid-back vibe of lounge music, achieved through instrumental technique without remixing or studio gimmickry. With Steve Shapiro at the helm playing vibes, producing, and arranging, the accompaniment he gets from guitarist Pat Bergeson, Annie Sellick on vocals, Scott Kreitzer on tenor saxophone, Doug Weiss on bass, and Jeff Williams on drums is not only warm and tasteful, but is filled with the kind of retro-cool in-the-pocket grooves that will have listeners poised for more of Shapiro's triple-threat musicality. Sellick's icy-cool voice and soft-chic approach has that late-night feel that blends conservative with sexy on "You Don't Know What Love Is." She's definitely someone to stay tuned to. Shapiro's solo on this song is filled with musical diplomacy as he articulates his bandmates' visions with style and passion. "Four On Six" is an awesome vehicle for bassist Doug Weiss and saxophonist Scott Kreitzer. This rarely heard Wes Montgomery gem is definitely a winner. Low Standards should boost Shapiro's profile as an accomplished vibraphonist, and will definitely make him a favorite with jazz critics because of his ability to bring well-known jazz standards into a different realm of musical dialogue. This CD is definitely saying something and has the perfect late-night ambience for just chillin', or getting something started with that special person.
