The fourth ECM album for the Wasilewski Trio adds a special guest, the lyrical Swedish saxophonist Joakim Milder, whom the Poles came to know through performances with Tomasz Stanko’s Litania project. Amongst other affinities, the players share a love of Krzyzstof Komeda’s music, and Komeda’s “Sleep Safe and Warm” theme, written for Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby makes a reappearance here. As ever, the Wasilewski group balances original material – intensely melodic new tunes by Marcin (including two variations of the beautiful title track) – with a daring range of covers, embracing Herbie Hancock, the Police’s “Message In A Bottle” and Slawomir Kurkiewicz’s arrangement of a composition by Grazyna Bacewicz, and reinforces its status as one of the most resourceful groups around.

The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys marked the commercial and artistic apex of the second coming of Traffic, which had commenced in 1970 with John Barleycorn Must Die. The trio that made that album had been augmented by three others (Ric Grech, Jim Gordon, and "Reebop" Kwaku Baah) in the interim, though apparently the Low Spark sessions featured varying combinations of these musicians, plus some guests…

All great human passions whether romantic, creative, inventive, or transformative begin with a single spark. On her tenth album as a leader, Japanese pianist/composer Hiromi traces the path of the flame ignited by that spark as it consumes and inspires. Over the course of nine expressively charged songs, the listener is carried away on an impassioned spiritual journey that might tell the story of a personal discovery, a love affair, or the creation of the music itself. Spark showcases the always thrilling sound of Hiromi's Trio Project with her most narratively sweeping and emotionally overflowing set of music to date. The pianist finds her own spark in her interaction with her triomates of the last five years, contrabass guitarist Anthony Jackson (Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Chick Corea, The O'Jays) and drummer Simon Phillips (The Who, David Gilmour, Judas Priest, Toto, Jack Bruce).

Trio Elf is one of the internationally most acclaimed German jazz groups. It's the only band from Germany that recently received a whole page in the American Downbeat, the most famous Jazz magazine in the world. "Trio Elf continues its signature exploration of the best of what's out there in the world of sound" Downbeat Trio Elf has truly re-invented the classic jazz piano trio in recent years by using grooves and sounds of contemporary club styles as a kickoff for improvisation.

"Though Mark Lettieri’s third solo album may be a collection of independent vignettes, as a unit they cohere more than ever. United more by feel than concept, they provide ten snapshots of how far their composer has come as an artist. “I wanted to make a statement, and in that respect it’s almost my first record,” says Lettieri of the sessions. “I’m happy with everything I’ve done prior, but I think I’m finally getting it all together.” Listening to the tightness of his band, members of which he drew from the Dallas-Fort Worth funk belt of which he has become an important fixture, it’s easy to agree. The core trio consists of Lettieri, bassist Wes Stephenson, and drummer Jason Thomas. To this nexus he invites guest satellites Shaun Martin (Rhodes, synths, piano), Milo Deering (pedal steel guitar and fiddle), and Bobby Sparks (synths)."

On her tenth album as a leader, Japanese pianist/composer Hiromi traces the path of the flame ignited by that spark as it consumes and inspires.

As with any of her previous releases, Spark will be supported by vigorous touring across North America, Europe and the Far East.

One knew where one stood with him. A stylistically reliable factor, from whom any jazz innovation seemed to bounce off like flotsam from a rock. With his physique alone Oscar Peterson radiated dominance, let alone with his performance. A Sun King on the piano, the absolute master of the trio, who – his co-musicians positioned behind his back – hardly needed any eye contact to convey his nonverbal stage directions. The short-lived trio together with George Mraz and Ray Price confirmed this impression even more than previous formations.

The unlikeliest of bedfellows sometimes make the sweetest music, and Julia Hulsmann's Good Morning Midnight is such a union: soulful, sinewy piano trio jazz, set around ten Dickinson poems plus one song ("Riverman") from the late English singer/songwriter and Twentieth Century romantic, Nick Drake. Imagine the Esbjörn Svensson Trio with Kurt Elling re-setting the works of William Wordsworth and you're approaching the right ballpark. And the secret weapon here is undoubtedly Roger Cicero. His schooled, technically facile voice lends itself well to Dickinson's precise and formal verse, but the soul/gospel undertones behind the college veneer provide the real spark.
