Carsten Dahl / Arild Andersen / Patrice Héral: Escapes

This European trio joins on equal terms a Danish pianist, Norwegian bassist and French drummer in a musical concept with roots on both sides of the Atlantic as well as in the northern and southern parts of the Old Continent. In what they play, one hears traces of Jarrett, the French Impressionists, and ECM's "Nordic sound," but they blend these influences in such a personal way that their music never seems contrived. Above all, as in the case of this track, it is full of the surprise that one legitimately expects from jazz.
