Various Artists: E.S.T. Symphony

Read "E.S.T. Symphony" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

One of the most widely popular piano trios in modern memory, e.s.t. combined jazz, classical, rock, and extended techniques in an organic and original way that hasn't been heard before. Since the tragic, accidental death of the visionary pianist/composer Esbjörn Svensson in 2008, there have been a handful of piano trios that provided a glimmer of ...

Dan DeChellis Trio: My Age of Anxiety

Read "My Age of Anxiety" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

If anything in jazz approaches the status of a commodity, it would be the piano trio. The inevitable comparisons run the gamut from Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett to Cecil Taylor and, more often than not, those benchmarks are either unattainable or unsustainable. A more accessible measure may be in the ability to differentiate one group's ...

Two Sides Of The Trio Coin: Sebastian Liedke and Heniu

Read "Two Sides Of The Trio Coin: Sebastian Liedke and Heniu" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

These two albums make it abundantly clear that bassist Sebastian Liedke doesn't look at music as a unidirectional art form, and his life experiences likely have a lot to do with his outlook. The young, Berlin-based artist had put his instrument on the back burner while he was gainfully employed as a civil engineer, but lack ...

Sebastian Liedke Trio: Zeitenwende

Read "Zeitenwende" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

This second release from Germany's Sebastian Liedke Trio is initially so unassuming that it is only on repeated listens that the music unfolds in understated complexity. Within the treatments of its six original tunes, the contemplative nature of the music is infused with a bristling energy. Roughly translating to a “turning point," Zeitenwende is, indeed, that ...

Neil Cowley Trio: Radio Silence

Read "Radio Silence" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

In recent years, a number of piano trios have done an admirable job filling the void left by the untimely passing of Esbjörn Svensson and, by consequence, his pioneering trio, e.s.t. The Tingvall Trio, more than most, along with Sebastian Liedke, Marcin Wasilewski and Colin Vallon, have all overseen efforts that encapsulate a similar style and ...

Sebastian Liedke Trio: Zeitenwende

Read "Zeitenwende" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

There are times when bombast, noise and heavy riffs seem like musical perfection, and other times when beauty, gentleness and melody are exactly what's required. For those other times, Zeitenwende is an ideal choice. The second album from bassist Sebastian Liedke's Berlin-based trio builds on the success of 2010's self produced debut, To Walk In The ...

Heniu: Von Hier Nach Dort

Read "Von Hier Nach Dort" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Von Hier Nach Dort is Heniu's debut album; a light, almost ethereal, collection of tunes that draws strongly on jazz but also incorporates influences from folk, classical and ambient genres. The result is a pleasingly fresh and accessible recording, with a positive and unpretentious vibe. Hans Arnold composed all of the tunes on ...

With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today.
