Rick Gallagher’s debut release, "Sweet Potato Eyebrows," showcases his versatility as both an arranger, composer, and a jazz pianist through a variety of classic-sounding originals and standards. From the traditional jazz trio performance of the romantic ballad "The Night Before" to the funkier sextet sounds of "People of the World" and "Sweet Potato Eyebrows," listeners of all ages are sure to find a favorite. Check out Gallagher’s tasteful interpretation of the standards "I Got It Bad" and "They Can’t Take That Away From Me." "Grace Amazing" is his haunting reharminization of the traditional hymn "Amazing Grace." Refreshing jazz waltzes, such as "Everything Is Good(Olivia’s Song)" and "Adyn Rebekah" complete the recording with their uplifting spirit. "Sweet Potato Eyebrows" comes together as a classic collection of memorable songs performed by some of the most talented jazz musicians in the northeastern United States.
