Saturday March 12, 2022 09:00 PM EST
CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: The debut of saxophonist-composer Jeff Crompton’s trio with Chris Riggenbach on bass and Kenito Murray on drums. After spinning some Sonny Rollins albums during the pandemic, Crompton formed Standard Practice to strictly play jazz standards, rather than his original works. All three musicians are all well-versed in avant-garde and straight-ahead jazz, which means, as Crompton says, “These familiar tunes might go anywhere.” — DD
