Say you're a brilliant, middle-aged, unknown jazz pianist and Australian, to boot. What do you do?

You could do worse than hire one of the greatest aggregations of musicians alive–Branford Marsalis (soprano sax), Joe Lovano (tenor sax), Ed Schuller (bass), Jeff "Tain" Watts (drums), and ringer Scott Tinkler (trumpet). It probably also helps to have an arm's length of credits in classical, film, television, theater, and live performance.

In short, Paul Grabowsky, unknown though he may be to North American ears, is not your average middle-age jazz journeyman. On his debut stateside release he instantly establishes himself as a new musical voice of depth and subtly. I, for one, would travel some distance to hear him, and I would gladly snap up any subsequent releases based on the strength and beauty of this one. Let's just hope he's successful enough on this outing to warrant another shot.

And there's no reason why he shouldn't be. Charging out of the gate with the powerhouse "Tailfin," featuring some wicked drum moves and blistering trumpet before settling into a cool if off-kilter groove, he sets the stage for not only some pretty spectacular playing, but also a wide-ranging and fully realized compositional acumen.

I admit, it took me a while to warm up to the long-legged and eccentric compositions, but once I did, I begin to see that they sprang from the mind of a genuinely iconoclastic musician, teeming with fresh ideas. Pretty much of a surprise, but entirely worth encountering.
