Alan Pasqua... The name could be a synonym for extraordinary musicality. One is dazzled by the list of who’s who in jazz the man has played with and written for ! With Pasqua, it’s all about the net result, (which has been consistently brilliant). His ability to fade into the background, while transcending it is key.
Downbeat: Alan's lightness of touch, combined with innate taste and superb technical skills sneaks up on you. The absence of expectation insinuates itself into your consciousness. No idle stream-of-consciousness here: Alan is an economical player for whom each note and chord is given the utmost attention.
Jazz Times: There’s an unabashed romanticism about Pasqua's work that makes it eminently accessible, while still extremely substantive. Pasqua’s style is refined yet playful in a less-is-more kind of way. His artistry appeals on many levels—but by avoiding the obvious and eschewing virtuosic displays, he creates an ambiance where one has to pay attention to truly appreciate the riches revealed beneath the soft and engaging surface.
All About Jazz: While interviewing Alan Pasqua, he said... ‘I hope that the music I create will give the listener, a place to rest for a while. It was made with love, care and respect’
Jazz Bakery: Care may be the essential word... We hear you Alan, and we definitely care !
