Drummer assembles powerful line-up of allies for his third tour of duty as leader...
Utilizing power and subtlety, drummer Steve Fidyk clearly demonstrates his commanding performance and compositional skills on this passionate and thoughtful collection of improvisational music.
His third date as a leader features an all-star band of New York’s finest — the impressive front-line of trumpet legend Joe Magnarelli and tenor titan Xavier Perez alongside the extraordinary rhythm team of pianist Peter Zak, and bassist Michael Karn. Each member is an active, contributing participant that pushes Fidyk’s hard hitting rhythmic and melodic message direct to the theatre of operations.
Music fans should agree that "Battle Lines" brings together the finest elements of soulful swing, confirming Fidyk as an exciting bandleader for years to come.
