Product Description

Equilibrium is the ECM debut of a German/American/Spanish trio, which through frequent touring has grown into a remarkably tight and stylistically unique unit in recent years. Fueled by the tension created through the contrasting styles of pianist Benedikt Jahnel (whose approach is characterized by an unusual interest in rhythmic subdivisions) and drummer Howard (who, in Jahnels words, treats and perceives rhythmic phrases as melodical lines without fixed micro units), and with bass player Antonio Miguel often the musical mediator, the groups sound draws subtly from classical influences as well as contemporary concepts of groove.

Leader Jahnel, also known as a member of Cyminology, has sharpened his profile playing with the Metropol Orchestra, Phil Woods, Johannes Enders, Charlie Mariano, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Dave Liebman and John Abercrombie. Produced by Manfred Eicher at Radio Televisione Svizzera in Lugano the seven tracks on Equilibrium, all Jahnel originals/compositions, strike a unique and delicate balance between composed parts and improvisation or group improvisation.

Wonderful combination of traditional jazz form (piano, bass, drums) and contemporary content.
Melodies are spellbinding, sometime with psychodelic flavor and sound is crystal clear.

I would recommend it to lovers of modern jazz music.
This is great!

This is a brilliant set of compositions that explore rich timbres and evocative melodies in the Trio Piano setting. I haven't heard anything like this since Brad Mehldau came on the scene. If you like Bill Evans and Lyle Mays, you should add this to your collection. A word of warning
On several tracks there's some honking note. You can hear it on Sacred Silence 5:21 I thought it was an issue with my iTunes
player but it's on the CD too. A couple of other tracks I heard a similar thing. Unfortunate really. I wonder how this managed to get pressed, since ECM has such a pristine reputation for audiophile quality.
Other than that I LOVE This album.

These are first rate musicians. Owen Howard"s sensitive drumming stands out. I hope they will tour in the U.S. ECM's production is beautiful.
