Room Of Ones Own

  • ArtistRachel Z
  • Year1996
  • Record Label 
  • DescriptionRachel Z, a talented young keyboardist, sticks to acoustic piano and varies the personnel and instrumentation from track-to-track on this interesting set. In addition to a woodwind section, such players as violinist Regina Carter, tenor saxophonist George Garzone, bassist Charnett Moffett and drummers Terri Lyne Carrington and Cindy Blackman are among the supporting cast. Rachel's ten originals (which are dedicated to various women ranging from her mother and a 17th-century painter to Billie Holiday and Joni Mitchell) cover a lot of moods with the emphasis on relaxed and thoughtful pieces. Although her own piano playing sometimes recalls Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea (along with touches of Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett), Rachel Z is gradually developing her own style. This is the type of record that needs to be heard several times to be fully appreciated for Rachel Z's subtle playing and moody themes contain much of value beneath the surface. Well worth checking out. ~ Scott Yanow pianist creates a critically acclaimed tribute to the work of women artists, feat. some of the top female players on the jazz scene - the ensemble plays the compositions of Artemisia Gentilschi, Judith Jamison, Virginia Wolf & Joni Mitchell Recorded at the Power Station, New York, New York. Includes liner notes by Rachel Z.
