This is a truly intimate and personal acoustic Jazz album from two members of the Holly Cole Trio was recorded ‘off the floor’ on an analog 1/2” tape recorder at 30 ips, non-Dolby, with no overdubs.  It is a wonderful spontaneous fusion of spirit.

Whether playing simply as a duo, with Davis on piano and Piltch on acoustic bass, or with the occasional guest on some tracks, their dedication to the ‘spirit of ensemble music’ is palpable.

Bassist David Piltch and pianist Aaron Davis, veterans of Holly Cole’s trio, recorded Take One, their first album together, in 1996 live off the floor with musical friends including David’s brother, the accomplished guitarist Rob Piltch and fellow Holly Cole band member Kevin Breit.

Piltch and Davis composed most of these tunes, either individually or together; the album is rounded out with a Steve Earle cover, Kirsty MacColl’s Last Day of Summer and the traditional folk song Black Is the Color (Of My True Love’s Hair).
