Michael Shea Quartet
Last Night While You Slept  (AC-5007, released 1994)
The first album from pianist/composer Shea features French hornist Mark Taylor, known for his work with Henry Threadgill and Muhal Richard Abrams, in a lyrical, swinging, setting. Shea's tunes are warmly emotional; his group plays with power and passion. If you like Joanne Brackeen, Mulgrew Miller, or Keith Jarrett, you'll enjoy this.

"A formidable jazz piano player and writer." 

-John Basile, Neon Navigator

"Fine solos interplay." 

-Ken Franckling, JazzTimes

"Fully considered, and full of interesting compositional gambits...a strong set of
distinctive music." 
-Dave Dupont, Cadence

"...takes us to many corners of the heart." 

-James Lesnick, Jamaica Plain Gazette
