Somehow It's True

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David R. Adler
Bruce Barth's third Double-Time release features Terell Stafford on trumpet and flugel, Adam Kolker on tenor and soprano sax and alto clarinet, Ugonna Okegwo on bass, Duduka DaFonseca on percussion, and Billy Hart on drums.

Two standard bossas also appear: a mellow trio reading of "Estate" and a lively take on Jobim's "Triste" in seven. There are only three Barth originals, but they range widely, from the 6/8 modal fury of "Tom Tom Thing" to the melodic solo piano feature "Somehow It's True" to the quasi-free-form "Solitude," the last of which is reprised toward the end of the program. The consistently stellar playing and the uncommon conceptual moves make this one of Barth's most refreshing efforts to date.
