With Untucked in Hannover, Tom Rainey's top-notch quintetObbligato presents a third album of a collection of jazz standards- with Jacob Sacks on piano replacing regular pianist KrisDavis for this live recording. Wonderful jazz tunes like Stella byStarlight or I Fall in Love Too Easily are interpreted in an opendialogue with stunning joy of playing and improvisation. Andthough standards are the modus operandi of Obbligato, theirapproach is intended to be less conventional, less reverentialand certainly less solo-centric than many other bands that tackleswith Standards. Obbligato sometimes plays with the essencesof famous jazz standards in an implied way, sometimes in ateasing and mysterious way, but always in a tantalizing way. "Close your eyes, imagine sitting in the front row of your favoritejazz club, sit back and enjoy Obbligato playing pieces from theGreat American Songbook in a way you've never heard thembefore: and by one of the most inventive and inspiring live bandsof the last decade," writes Laurence Donohue-Greene in the linernotes.
