Mike LeDonne • To Each His Own

Review by David R. Adler
Pianist Mike LeDonne switches labels -- from Criss Cross to Double-Time -- and issues this strong trio recording, joined by bassist Peter Washington and veteran drummer Mickey Roker. LeDonne's lyrical, bop-oriented expertise comes through on three originals, a vibrant "My Romance," two Strayhorn items (including a rhythmically spiced-up "Star-Crossed Lovers"), and blues themes by Wes Montgomery ("Movin' Along") and Cedar Walton ("Bleecker Street Theme"). The opening "Encounter," based on "Love for Sale" changes, finds LeDonne sounding quite a bit like Inception-era McCoy Tyner.

Personnel: Mike LeDonne (piano); Peter Washington (bass); Mickey Roker (drums).
