Album Notes
DO NOT MISS Rodney Kendrick's latest release THANK YOU! If you're tired of cerebral music that feels like a calculus problem, or of the cookie-cutter imitations of imitations that the industry passes off as "jazz", if you miss bouncing to bebop, and still want to feel the funk, THANK YOU is for you! A solo-piano recording for those who still love this music, all it has been, and all it is supposed to be!!!

Listen to what these reviewers had to say about this extraordinary musician...

Rodney Kendrick has quietly been releasing some of the better jazz albums of the last five years - NY Times

Kendrick's own compositions and keyboard work reflect his understanding and appreciation of Ellington, Mingus and Monk, and big band traditions ranging from Fletcher Henderson to Sun Ra. - CD Review

Rodney Kendrick is an ornery, refreshingly honest soul who infuses his music with warm, colorful soloing and melodies glowingly reminiscent of Monk, Mingus, and Randy Weston. [This album] is that rare release, inspired by past musical geniuses but not shackled to their legacy. - JazzTimes

Eccentricity is an unusual trait in jazz, nowadays, but Rodney Kendrick is eccentric.... [And] oddness, after so much predictability in jazz, is almost it's own reward; Mr. Kendrick offers that and ability, too. - NY Times

Kendrick seems to be exploring the myriad paths of Charles Mingus and Thelonius Monk, showing a fondness for the former's impressionistic, organized chaos and the latter's whimsical jack-in-the-box approach...but this ain't all Mingus and Monk, for Kendrick applies African textures to the weave. - Stereo Review

Kendrick puts on a brilliant keyboard display...[He] is one of today's most exciting young piano players and arrangers. - Down Beat.
