Nathalie Loriers is one of the most mature pianists to have come to prominence in Belgium, a small European country that has always produced a comparatively impressive number of talented jazz musicians. Here she shows her groovy chops on a tune she penned, and a great Italian/Dutch rhythm pair helps her get the most out of a rather simple rhythmic pattern. It evolves into organic improvisation by the piano, then the bass, without ever losing the deeply rooted feel established by the initial chords.
