Impromptu is the long awaited fourth album from acclaimed Jazz pianist Bob Mamet. His previous collaborations with artists such as Alex Acuna, Larry Carlton, Eric Marienthal, Gerald Albright, and David Benoit led Jazziz magazine to proclaim “Mamet is a brilliant composer [who gives] his players an intelligent, thoughtful, and dynamic landscape in which to work.”
On this latest outing, Mamet teams with esteemed bassist Darek Oles and world renowned drummer Joe La Barbara. Oles is one of Europe's most celebrated bass players and his duets with famed pianist Brad Mehldau have garnered critical acclaim worldwide. La Barbera played drums in the legendary trio that included Bill Evans on piano and Marc Johnson on bass, creating some of the most influential albums in Jazz history.
With Impromptu, released in March of 2010, Mamet, Oles, and La Barbera bring passion and elegance to a timeless Jazz idiom. Ten original compositions showcase the individual virtuosity and artful interplay between the musicians. Mamet's vibrant and lyrical brand of acoustic Jazz creates a unique signature sound that is at once classic and modern.
