Michael Kaeshammer
Strut
(ALMA)
Strut, like its predecessor (2000’s No Strings Attached) showcases Kaeshammer’s love of jazz, blues, ragtime and boogie- woogie. It also furthers his reputation for tackling the serious aspects of the music without forgetting that it should also be fun. Like a cross between Mose Allison and Frank McKenna, he tackles the piano like it’s a beast yet plays flourishes and runs that disclose his classical training. If he keeps this up, he’ll put a serious dent in our blinders-on love affair with Diana Krall.
