Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Niccolò Lucarelli

Il jazz di scuola europea si caratterizza per una maggior vicinanza alla musica classica e per certe atmosfere placide e riflessive, dove la melodia sembra attaccarsi alla pelle dell'ascoltatore come vento del deserto, e aprire una finestra sull'indagine della propria interiorità. Non fa eccezione The Invariant, ultima fatica del pianista tedesco Benedikt Jahnel, autore degli otto ...

Read "Mike Jurkovic's Best Releases of 2017: Pianos Lead the Way" reviewed by Mike Jurkovic

There are some years when certain artists and their instrument stand tallest among the tall. This year it was piano players. Established names, exciting discoveries. Creation music for repeated listening, relentless invention, insight, humor, new equations. Each with a particular turn, a defining touch, that takes you past the chaos of our harshest days.

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Sometimes there's no substitute for experience, as demonstrated by this trio as it celebrates its tenth anniversary as a working unit. Last heard on Equilibrium (ECM, 2012), it's an international group that met through a series of lucky coincidences: Berlin-based pianist/composer Benedikt Jahnel is joined by Spanish bassist Antonio Miguel and Canadian drummer Owen Howard. Jahnel ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: The Invariant

Read "The Invariant" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

The Invariant, as in a “constant," is a fitting title for Benedikt Jahnel Trio who have recorded as a unit since their debut Modular Concepts (Material label, 2008) and later moving on to the ECM label with Equilibrium (2012). Jahnel, a musician and mathematician in Berlin, has a deep appreciation for complex similarities between the two ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: Equilibrium

Read "Equilibrium" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Un tedesco, uno spagnolo e un canadese compongono questo bel trio, che si muove su terreni magari già ampiamente sondati, ma lo fa con estremo buon gusto e assoluta padronanza della materia. La rotta di navigazione è in effetti quella classica (da una trentina d'anni in qua, almeno), un procedere - ed espandersi, e lievitare - che ...

Benedikt Jahnel Trio: Modular Concepts

Read "Modular Concepts" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Le note di copertina dell'album sono scritte da Wolfgang Muthspiel. Sul sito di Jahnel, si possono invece leggere lusinghieri commenti espressi nei suoi confronti da musicisti come Richie Beirach, John Taylor, David Friedman. Certo il jazz non è più quello degli anni '60, ed il vecchio adagio “dimmi con chi suoni e ti dirò chi sei" ha ...
