In his long career, pianist and composer Bill Mays has always strived for a sense of freedom in his playing and has kept his ears open to many musical influences. On his 3rd release for Palmetto Records, Live At Jazz Standard, Mays taps into these influences and swings hard and free with his trio of six years - Martin Wind on bass and Matt Wilson on drums – producing perhaps the most adventurous CD he’s ever recorded.

Recorded at New York City’s Jazz Standard in December of 2004, Mays’ goal with the live CD was to try to capture the moments when the trio lets loose and creates great music on the fly. Mays and his trio played with few set arrangements, preferring to walk the proverbial tight rope without a net rather than confine themselves. Each player brought an arranger’s sensibility to the bandstand and nothing was the same from night to night. The resulting recording is a stunning collection of original and reworked standard tunes, some of which the trio had never performed before.
