ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A mainstay of Vermont’s lively music scene for over thirty years, Cassel is also no stranger to the critics. Of his vibrantly eclectic performances the Montreal Star wrote: "Cassel offers a highly original and imaginative approach to piano and vocal improvisation. He has a wit and a vitality that could make big name performers forget their last 100 encores."

Downbeat Magazine refers to Cassel as "a real find as a pianist," while the Boston Globe lauds him as "a versatile, laid-back exponent of the jazz piano."

Versatility is one of Cassel’s greatest strengths, and in a typical evening he moves effortlessly and expertly through a repertoire ranging from Jerry Lee Lewis to Cole Porter to Duke Ellington to Fats Waller to Frederic Chopin. And, of course, there’s everything in between, including a wide selection of his own songs.

John has appeared with many internationally known performers, including Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Maynard Ferguson, and Dave Brubeck. Mostly, though, John plays where he has always been the most comfortable - in small clubs. You can catch his always-surprising show at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont, Friday through Tuesday nights.

Cocktail Piano Tradition is Alive
I enjoyed listening to Mr. Cassel's album as it is really hard to find good cocktail piano in modern times. I have collected the genre for years. I prefer the pianists from LA in the 50s like George Shearing, Bill Evans and Bobby Troup. I enjoyed this album but it lacks some of the subtlety and sophistication I hear from other players. It reminds me a bit of Marian McPartland. aka a bit (church lady). The choice of selection though is great and especially like the Ellington. I commend artists for keeping this genre alive. And Mr. Cassel does a nice job. I would indeed listen to this album though for artists I prefer I would stay with the more sophisticated artists out of NY such as Billy Stritch, James Spencer and Bobby Short or my favs George Shearing and Bill Evans.
