“Many electric keyboardists treat the synthesizer and other keyboards as if they are merely electrified pianos. Bob Frye has a much deeper understanding of his instruments. Clearly he knows what synthesizers can do. At the same time, Frye knows how to make music swing. On the recording debut of his trio, "Your Moment Is Now," he has created 11 originals that are full of spontaneity yet are purposeful and use his keyboards creatively. Bob Frye's "Your Moment Is Now" grows in interest with each listen. It is an impressive set full of surprises that is well worth experiencing. "Your Moment is Now" is available on iTunes and on Amazon. ”
