“MATTHEW FRIES/Parallel States: An in demand piano jazzbo accompanist, Fries shakes off the big city dust and returns to his solo roots for a well composed and played set that shows how solo piano records should be made. Challenging himself as an artist, the chances he takes are well placed bets making this the kind of date you can just fall back into and let it wash over you. Loaded with chops to spare that he doesn’t feel the need to roll out all at once, this is one of those sets that raises the bar and sets the gold standard for it’s genre. Killer stuff loaded with just the right vibe that never wears out it’s welcome.”
