About the album

On his sophomore leader CD and Criss Cross debut, pianist Victor Gould -- joined throughout by bassist Dezron Douglas and drummer Eric McPherson, with guest appearances by Tim Warfield on soprano saxophone, Godwin Louis on alto saxophone, and percussionist Khalil Kwame Bell -- presents a diverse, well-paced program comprised of originals and a cohort off-the-beaten-track numbers from the Great Jazz Songbook.

Gould has spent consequential time apprenticing in groups led by such modern masters as Donald Harrison, Ralph Peterson, Terri Lyne Carrington and Wallace Roney, and you can hear it in his fresh, harmonically erudite approach to the repertoire, which he addresses -- and inhabits -- on its own terms of engagement while retaining an entirely 21st century perspective.

Victor Gould grew up in Los Angeles, California and began playing piano at the age of four. While attending the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, he augmented his studies at the Berklee Five-Week Summer Performance Program, and was selected for the Brubeck Summer Institute Program. Gould recently completed his undergraduate degree at Berklee College of Music, where he was the recipient of the Herbie Hancock Presidential Scholarship. Gould's honors include the 2009 ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer Award and a 2006 Thelonious Monk International Piano Competition semifinalist. As a member of the Donald Harrison Quartet, Gould recorded three CD's and a DVD, and toured the United States and Europe. He has also performed Ralph Peterson, Terence Blanchard, Branford Marsalis, Nicholas Payton and others.
