Joined by Buster Williams and Matt Wilson, Zeitlin almost evenly divides Slickrock between original compositions and reworked standards. Opening the CD with "You And The Night And The Music," Zeitlin spends little more than half a chorus referring to the melody before he veers into self generated counterpoints and then various detours that eventually merge at the end into the melody again, like the flow of a herringbone chart. Beyond the exquisite piano playing, though, which brings out the music with Zeitlin's sure sense of touch and coruscating command of the entire keyboard, it becomes apparent that Williams and Wilson are entirely engaged in the music. Williams' bass lines are solid with buoyancy that sustains the motion. Wilson spontaneously captures the textures of Zeitlin's music and heightens them through the sensitive extension of tones with lightly shimmering cymbal work or driving malleting, ever conscious of the need to help fulfill the thoughts of Zeitlin rather than rolling over them. In other words, the trio plays as a cohesive unit as Zeitlin's virtuosity spurs Williams and Wilson to a state of intense focus.

Reviews
"Zeitlin remains an extraordinarily sensitive and brilliantly virtuosic pianist and composer, as attested to on his recent 'Slickrock'." - Down Beat
