Philippe Saisse Trio – On The Level!

It was back in 2007, with his tight cover of the Steely Dan hit ‘Do It Again’, that the multi-talented Philippe Saisse had the surprise radio hit of the year. It was taken from the album The Body And Soul Sessions, a collection that was replete with shimmering examples of familiar, yet delightfully re-imagined, favorites. Two years later he followed up with the immaculate At Worlds Edge and since then, aided somewhat by relocation from New York to LA, he has become a ‘go to’ producer and performer with work for artists such as Peter White, Paul Brown and Rick Braun.

His latest collection is titled On The Level with the same-titled single, a wonderful example of contemporary jazz piano that features percussionist Gumbi Ortiz and guitarist Marc Antoine. The band consists of keyboardist Saisse, drummer Skoota Warner, bassist David Finck, and vocalist/percussionist Gumbi Ortiz.

The new album is available at Amazon.com.
