Soren Bebe: Echoes

Read "Echoes" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

A yearning reticence lies at the heart of Echoes, Norwegian pianist Soren Bebe's sixth trio disc. Stark yet beautiful at all times, Echoes follows in the spacious, introverted soundscapes of fellow Danish pianistsTord Gustavsen and the late Esbjorn Svensson.

Neo-classical in structure yet open to the tides, the Bebe written title track leads off ...
