Alberto Pinton Trio: All The DifferenceBy
The trio consists of drummer Konrad Agnas and bassist Vilhelm Bromander, both members of Pinton's Sestetto Contemporaneo, plus Agnas can be heard in Pinton's quartet Noi Siamo. Their previous digital release RÖD was selfreleased in 2018. Pinton composed all the music heard here, beginning and ending with "Never There." Bleak, yet achingly beautiful, the alpha and omega tracks paint a picture of the soulsearching nature of our COVID-19 times. Pinton has a way with the low end, especially via his bass clarinet and baritone saxophone, that reveal his soul. Then again, we may say the same about the Nordic temperament. "Never There Intro" segues into the aptly titled "Dark," with its trawling melody which sidesteps desolation with a promise of light. Such is the music here, often brooding but ultimately joyous. "Ytram" bounces with Eric Dolphy-like energy as does "Giants," which pulses with a jagged busyness. The music works well because of the balance between the trio. Pinton, Bromander and Agnas are locked into each piece here. "The Sentinel," and "Sevens," which Pinton hoists his flute, are excellent examples where this trio performs with one voice. If you close your eyes it is easy to imagine the close knit interactions of this band.
