Dancing

Nice and easy Jazz Library album by German jazz pianist, composer and arranger Max Greger Junior, son of Max Greger (famous German jazz musician, saxophonist, band leader and conductor). Contains the light kitschy but catchy tune DANCING, written by Martin Böttcher. And yes, Greger’s piano is nicely dancing over the warm groove, charged with input of the Munich Pop Strings. Clean, 80’s studio Jazz but reminds me a little bit of the cool Soundtrack Jazz compositions by Vince Guaraldi Trio for Charles Schulz’s PEANUTS which I was gladly listening in my childhood. Quite the right sound for a relaxed Thursday night.
