It has been some time since Kevin Hays has delivered a new recording as a leader. The hiatus has provided the celebrated pianist and composer ample time to further his own craft of songwriting and performing, his main vehicle being his New Day Trio, featuring bassist Rob Jost and drummer Greg Joseph, musicians well versed in rock and folk as well as the jazz tradition. One tendency that Hays has more recently been relying on is the increasing use of his voice. This element has lent a more tuneful bent to his music, both vocal and instrumental. The focus on songwriting has led to a certain amplification of singer as songwriter and on his new recording, New Day, Hays enlisted the great Tony Scherr on guitar and the equally wonderful Gregoire Maret on chromatic harmonica.
