MODERN JAZZ – One of the most lyrically intriguing trios in jazz joins up with trumpeter Kenny Wheeler for a set of sober, introspective originals. Wheeler’s sour, wavering tone splashes against Pieranunzi’s pretty, billowing melodies and flowing solos to create a strange, bittersweet air. It’s good, but it might grate on some ears.

Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 6, 7, 8

1. 6:51 – trumpet wavers above an autumnal groove, propulsive piano solo
2. 3:16 – sad, spacious trumpet/piano dialogue; drums & bass stay on fringes
3. 6:44 – simple melody, gliding tempo; nice trumpet & bass solos
4. 7:48 – slow ballad, has a sort of drunken romance
5. 9:11 – relaxed ballad, wafts gently; piano solo adds some bluster
6. 3:17 – spacious, with chilly breezes and uncertain phrases
7. 6:50 – strong but gentle flow; horn weaves nimbly through the stream
8. 7:01 – relaxed, meandering stroll; has warmth, but hints at darkness
9. 7:20 – serious but rather catchy tune, cinematic feel
