Title: Trio Art at Its Finest
I have been buying the (actual CD’s) of Yelena’s for quite a while – I have them all – and she continues to get better with each outing. That’s a tall statement, considering her first CD was one of the best I’d ever heard. Her song writing is beautiful, with a great sense of melodic flow, yet with some spectacular flourishes. She continually surrounds herself with top sidemen and producers, so the end product is art in its truest form.
As a fan of the piano trio format you absolutely will not want to go without this CD, nor any of Yelena’s previous CD’s either.
In Yelena Eckemoff, Keith Jarrett has some serious competition.
