Kudos For Rob Schneiderman’s HMW Release “Tone Twister”

Hollistic MusicWorks artist Rob Schneiderman has been racking up great reviews and critical acclaim for “Tone Twister”, his new recording and maiden effort on the HMW label. Check out a bit of the buzz:

Downbeat Magazine (February 2018)

“Throughout his sideman stints with notables such as James Moody, J.J. Johnson, Art Farmer and Eddie Harris, his tenure in the band TanaReid and his 10 previous discs as a leader, pianist Rob Schneiderman has shown a straightahead heart marked by lyricism and no-nonsense taste.
That holds true on this set featuring eight originals burnished with subtle left  turns and infused with shades of Latin (“Footloose Freestyle”), blues (“Tone Twister”) and even a dose of half-time funk (“Left Coast Lullaby”). The centerpiece grabber is “Slapdance-Tapstick,” an uptempo swinger inspired by tap dancer Buster Brown.
This quintet’s sumptuous sound owes much to the rich, warm front- line union of trumpeter Brian Lynch (who owns the label and produced) and tenor saxophonist Ralph Moore. These two luminaries are, of course, tremendous soloists. But the key here is their rare sonic blend.
Bassist Gerald Cannon—taking time off  from his long tenure as McCoy Tyner’s musical director—lends his signature fat, solid support, while drummer Peter Van Nostrand is grooving, probing and catalyzing throughout. In essence, it’s the sound of a deeply connected quintet.”
