Review: With a knack for texture and improvisation, as well as a huge capacity to understand form and structure, Estonian pianist Randalu establishes his own depth-charged dramatic stance on his new disc. The work comprises nine rigorously structured originals for trio, combining jazz, avant-garde, classical, and modern composition with a carefully cultivated touch
