"Parisot is in his realm here, unleashing a torrent of fills and cymbal accents throughout... The level of pure, seething virtuosity is stunning." - JAZZIZ
Drummer Phil Parisot’s third release as a leader is a project inspired by the life and music of Johann Sebastian Bach. While shifting his focus to composition in recent years, Parisot observed that countless roads lead to Bach, whether through Bud Powell, Keith Jarrett, or even Albert Einstein. This insight inspired Parisot to research Bach’s personal journey and compositional approach, then apply this knowledge when developing his own material. Inventions is a humble tribute to the “musical scientist” from Thuringia, whom Beethoven referred to as “the immortal God of harmony.” "Parisot never seems to run out of inspired thought as a composer, or original rhythmic conception as a drummer."  - All About Jazz
