Bill Carrothers salutes the hard-bop trumpet giant, Clifford Brown. Carrother’s album "Joy Spring" is a jazz adventure, sensitive and thrilling, soulful and surprising. The trio takes a new look into each piece, and in the process comes up with totally organic forms. It is a highly individualistic reflection of a very unique magic.

 "... this trio album from pianist Bill Carrothers, bassist Drew Gress and drummer Bill Stewart is doubly welcome: as a fine recital in its own right, and as a reminder of the terrific music by the Clifford Brown-Max Roach Quintet of the mid-1950s. " 

 
Gearge Kanzler - Jazz Times - 1 July 2010 

                 Interpretation ****         Sound ****

 Tom Fuchs - Piano News magazine - 29 June 2010  


 "...In this superb tribute, Carrothers has Drew Gress (bass) and Bill Stewart (drums), kindred spirits who reinforce his individuality with their own..." *****

 
Ray Comiskey - The Irish Times - 18 June 2010 

 "...Carrothers has also gotten a well-deserved reputation for being a considerably noteworthy interpreter of other artists’ material. Carrothers’ latest outing Joy Spring, examines not any specific time perios but rather one person: bop trumpeter and legend Clifford Brown. On 12 compositions either written by or assicated with Brown, Carrothers and his trio - bassist Drew Gress and drummer Bill Stewart - create a touching and masterful tribute that balances ballads with breakneck numbers... The recording has a crisp freshness that accents each instrument and musician. Seizer puts subtle cymbals up where they belong, places the bass and piano notes right where they can be appreciated and continually helps underscore the emotional content."   ****½

 
Doug Simpson - AudiophileAudition.com - 2 June 2010
 

 "Tribute albums often come in the form of imitative musical gestures from musicians of a like-instrument - such as a saxophonist paying tribute to John Coltrane by trying to copy his style or specific mannerisms. But pianist Bill Carrothers has crafted a different type pf hamage with Joy Spring, using the piano trio format to flesh out some malleable constructions of songs associated with trumpeter Clifford Brown... ’I Remember Clifford’ takes a little while to coalesce, but it’s worth the wait. While some slightly darker hues make their way into this take, it serves the music well and - like all of the rest of the material here - pays tribute to Clifford Brown in its own way."

 
Dan Bilawsky - allaboutjazz - 11 May 2010
 

 "...Whether Carrothers and his trio are coloring within the lines, or impressionistic painting strokes with harmonic freedom, the music evokes the vivacity of Clifford Brown and the period of bebop in Which he excelled." ****

 
Jacob Teichroew - About.com:jazz - 22 May 2010

 "...Amazingly, awesome  tribute to a deceased jazz musician ..."

Klaus Hartl - Jazzthetik - 30 April 2010 
 

"No doubt this recording will bring more attention to Carrothers, as well as the legacy of Brown and Powell."

Brad Walseth - JazzChicago.net - 1 May 2010 


 "Joy Spring zeros in on a smaller slice of a more recent history: the music of died-too-young hard bop trumpeter Clifford Brown ... This is a masterfully sequenced album..." 

 
Dan McClenaghan - AllAboutJazz - 29 April 2010 

"Pianist Bill Carrothers brings together one hell of a trio with the inclusion of Drew Gress on bass and Bill Stewart on drums. Highly recommended for jazz and bop lovers!" 

Damian Erskine - Bass Musician magazine - 23 April 2010
