The take-no-prisoners approach of the opening track seems to convey only one message: make no mistake, the jazz Piano trio is still Alive and… kicking ass. The song, the exuberant Latin Cherish your Sunshine, is characterized by a mercurial melody that slithers, full of catch-me-if-you-can bravura, along the bar-lines. When, in the ‘tutti’, the theme is finally caught by the expertly chasing rhythm section, the listener cannot feel anything but joy. It’s the same joy that the Michiel Borstlap Trio - Boudewijn Lucas: electric bass, Erik Kooger: Drums - experienced whilst recording the album.

Drummer Bill Bruford and Dutch pianist and keyboardist Michiel Borstlap have performed together as duos on a very occasional basis during the past few years. The music on In Two Minds features the two old friends at four live concerts from 2006-2007 that were performed in England and Norway. All of the crowd noise and applause has been edited out, so it sounds like a studio set. However very little editing and no overdubbing or mixing took place, so this is an accurate reproduction of the live performances. Borstlap and Bruford perform 11 free improvisations plus Miles Davis' "All Blues." While the playing is spontaneous, it is often melodic with a logical development and plenty of variety. A few of the selections have such strong structures that they almost sound like a standard. Some of the other pieces mostly set moods, emphasize color or have one basic idea or plot. The results are consistently intriguing and rewarding.

Neither quite rock, nor quite jazz, both men believe in a music with immediacy, with authorship, and without boundaries or safety nets. Their instant compositions resonate with happy coincidence, brilliant technique, human accident, unforced error, missed chances, astonishing good luck, hidden intentions, oblique references and the full catalogue of happenstance that is mirrored in all human existence, and is just the kind of place in which both men can live and breathe and have their being.

A unique, historic festival! The first edition of the North Sea Jazz Festival took place in 1976 in the Nederlands Congresgebouw in The Hague. Some numbers in those early days: six venues, three hundred artists and about nine thousand visitors. In this very first festival year internationally renowned jazz legends performed, such as Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz, as well as most Dutch avant-garde artists.

Golden Viennese horn sound, full and at the same time tender piano and velvet, emotional violin sound and vibrato is the beginning of this recording which opens the gate to the powerful, romantic world of Johannes Brahms' music. Deep feelings and musical thoughts are presented with technical easiness, keeping the musical phrase and expression in the center of the listener's attention. The only idea this recording really shows off are Brahms' words "I speak through my music".

This album is quite unusual. Recorded shortly after Nat King Cole's death, pianist Oscar Peterson takes vocals on all but one of the dozen selections, sounding almost exactly like Cole. Peterson, who rarely ever sang, is very effective on the well-rounded program, whether being backed by a big band (arranged by Manny Albam) on half of the selections or re-creating both the spirit of the Nat King Cole Trio and his own group of the late '50s during a reunion with guitarist Herb Ellis and bassist Ray Brown.

"Whenever this trio plays, drop everything and go hear them!" hailed the Boston Globe on the occasion of The Boston Trio's Tanglewood debut at Ozawa Hall. Since their formation in 1997, the trio has quickly become one of today's most exciting chamber ensembles. Acclaimed for their "rich and rewarding, absolutely balanced" sound (Virginia Gazette), these virtuosic and profound musicians are committed to creating exceptional and daring performances of standard and contemporary repertoire.

After about a year of preparing their material, in February of 2013 Sebastian Spanache Trio went into the studio to record their first official album 'HUMANIZED'. From the first bars of 'Argentina' you can tell this is not going to be your usual jazz endeavor: the tunes are skillfully crafted, with intricate meters and complex, unexpected forms. The influences borrow from a wide musical palette, with grooves and atmospheres suggestive of ambient or electronic music. 'Seven is Your Friend' starts hot only to regain balance within the unique vitality of improvisations, in-the-moment dialogue and attention to the architecture of musical storytelling. And 'Red' calls to mind an ethereal journey through present-times music that goes beyond what you would typically hear in a 'classic' jazz piano trio.

Lorsqu’il fut fondé en 1994, le Trio Accanto (qui comprend maintenant Marcus Weiss aux saxophones, Nicolas Hodges au piano et Christian Dierstein à la percussion), le moins que l’on puisse dire est qu’il n’avait pas trop de répertoire à se mettre sous la dent. Mais depuis, les choses ont radicalement changé, et au cours de son existence, l’ensemble a créé plus d’une centaine d’ouvrages, se produisant à travers l’Europe, les Amériques et l’Asie.
