Pianist Larry Vuckovich’s new CD HIGH WALL: REAL LIFE FILM NOIR follows his acclaimed STREET SCENE film noir tribute that hit #1 on XM Satellite Radio and the top 10 of JazzWeek charts. It features the first jazz recording of a Bronislaw Kaper gem from the film noir High Wall, which inspired the CD title. Other tracks include four originals, a Barry Harris piece ”Lolita,” Crusaders’ funk and Rodrigo classical, plus two live concert tracks. Bassist Larry Grenadier returns from the STREET SCENE sessions for this CD as do percussionists Hector Lugo and Vince Delgado. Joining them are bassist Paul Keller and drummers Eddie Marshall and Chuck McPherson.

Scott Yanow, All Music Guide, has given HIGH WALL 4 1/2 stars. Chris Spector, Midwest Record, says: ”… this is a classy jazz piano date … Elegant and earthy with a surprising amount of funk … this is the kind of set you’ll be mad at yourself for missing … A real winning date. ” Reese Erlich, NPR’s Jazz Perspectives, says High Wall ”soars to new heights.” Look for a review in the 88s column of the September Jazz Times.
