Free playing, Danish composer Carl Nielsen's "Oft Am I Glad", tunes by Bill Evans and George Russell, a Norwegian hymn, contemporary composition by Ola Gjello, a Wolf Biemann protest song, Ariel Ramirez's folkloric "La Peregrinacion"... Wide ranging repertoire has become a hallmark of Bobo stenson's albums. But it's not just the eclecticism that is striking: Stenson, Jormin, and Fält take these far-flung sources and make an organic, breathing music out of them. Stenson of course, has long been one of the greats of Scandinavian jazz, and an ECM artist since the first years of the label. But there is a balance of energies in this particular trio - clear-edged, lyrical piano playing, rootedness and keen choice of notes from the bass, and detailed, textural drumming - that is especially satisfying. Recorded in Lugano in November and December 2011.
