The session paints sonar pictures of the lingering winter season. Eckemoff s original compositions converse with the incredible work of the celebrated Danish bassist Mads Vinding and are aided by Peter Erskine s drumming brilliance. Flawless interplay between these three fantastic musicians beholds a mutual understanding and concord on an exceedingly deep level. The margins between improvisation and composition in this refined music are almost indistinguishable; the structures are consistently complex, intricate and even epic. The music on Cold Sun flows genuinely and demonstrates not only the compositional talents of Eckemoff, but also the extraordinary interplay between the trio. Uniqueness of this striking music and the unsurpassed mastery of its performance make Cold Sun a stand out on the front row of the finest modern jazz and chamber records out today.
