Dave Sumner for Dave Summer’s Jazz Picks
Yelena Eckemoff, Glass Song: Lovely piano trio album featuring pianist Eckemoff, and ECM Records vets bassist Arild Andersen, and drummer Peter Erskine. Actually, a self-produced recording, nonetheless, this music should appeal to the ECM crowd. Peaceful music that generates a lively warmth and thoughtful expressions of creativity. As an aside, delve into the recording history of Andersen for proof of how the bass can stand in the spotlight and absolutely sing. Recommended.
