Album Review

ECM, 2017

MODERN JAZZ – The early pieces on this album start in a weightless, drifting space, usually with solo piano, then coalesce into beautiful, delicate structures like snowflakes. Later tunes have more drive. In both contexts, German pianist Hülsmann and her trio show off a wonderfully balanced, organic ebb and flow. A solid release.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 5, 6, 8, 9

1. 3:44 – gentle, frosty beauty: simple melody, expressive embellishments
2. 4:59 – slow solo intro; trio moves from spare openness to serene flow
3. 4:25 – minimalist intro, gentle mid/uptempo trio, a soulful nostalgic touch
4. 4:07 – soft ballad with slightly exotic melody, center drifts around the trio
5. 4:24 – relaxed Radiohead cover: from a distance, intimate, then propulsive
6. 5:04 – drum patter sets up a quiet, relaxed stroll; gets knotty in the middle
7. 4:33 – hushed ballad, piano approaches from off-center, complexity rises
8. 4:13 – upbeat tune skips, strolls, and tumbles along in a playful romp
9. 3:59 – uptempo, almost funky bass pulse: piano ducks & weaves
10. 4:28 – midtempo: rhythm sets up straight lines, soloists slide around them
11. 5:37 – deliberate intro, then highwire trio over uptempo ticking drums
