Daisuke Takeuchi has been playing on the jazz circuit for the last few years as a solo artists and also more recently as pianist in the quintet TRI4TH. Reinterpret The Passage is the third album release from the Daisuke Takeuchi Trio and it sees the band tackle a dozen covers of a variety of tunes ranging from jazz standards, pop and light classical music.

The tunes are given a contemporary arrangement in an attempt to go beyond jazz and appeal to a wider fan base. Some of the covers work well, while others fall short of the mark.
The oft-recorded standard On Green Dolphin Street is played with a modern arrangement yet still retains a distinct jazz mood and works well on the whole. Elsewhere interpretations of Airto Moreira's Tombo in 7/4 and the classic Summertime work well on the whole, as does the lovers' rock tinged mood given to Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1.
Not all of the versions are successful, however. Bacharach and David's Close To Me and The Beatles' Here, There And Everywhere fail to come close to the standards set by others recording these tunes and the arrangement of Chick Corea's Spain doesn't quite come off.
Reinterpret The Passage is a fairly ambitious project given the tunes the trio choose to cover, and it's a bit of a hit and miss affair, with a couple of real high points.
