Few trios even after a decade together ,can build musical landscapes this dramatic and richly detailed
It is hard to think of a jazz ensemble that waste fewer notes than bassist Arild Andersen´s trio .
Even at its most passionate , this music reveals structure,focus and clarity.
They have built up both learned and intuitive responses to each others’ playing, usually called ’empathy’, a vital ingredient for the essence of jazz to flourish by inspiring confidence and risk-taking.
All about Jazz
In-House Science is the best of this trio to date.
Sea of Tranquility
ECM Records has a track record that is proven and consistent, but In-House Science is an absolute corker of a live album from a trio at the height of their powers, giving the label one of I’m sure to be many must-hear jazz releases they will release in 2018. Don’t miss this one
As a trio, each player is able to switch between solo and support roles, almost in the same bar and this stepping forward into the spotlight and back to support their fellow players is so seamless and spontaneous that it can be easy to miss the complexity in the compositions that give the space for this to occur. Each of the pieces demonstrates an awareness of jazz history but also point out the path that future generations will be taking.
