Summer Times is an unusual record for pianist Franck Amsallem because, instead of him exclusively performing originals as on most of his previous recordings, he revives five standards. Amsallem shows that he can swing … la Wynton Kelly whenever he wishes and can infuse ballads with honest feeling. His interplay with bassist Johannes Weidenm쳌ller and drummer Joe Chambers is impressive, falling somewhere between Oscar Peterson (where the pianist dominates) and Bill Evans (with equality between the three musicians). Even the three originals are essentially swinging hard bop. Summer Times is the perfect introduction for listeners not familiar with the fine playing of the underrated Amsallem. ~ Scott Yanow
