Product Description

Four years after Cantando, a new album from the Bobo Stenson Trio recorded in Lugano last December explores a broad arc of material. Here we find: free playing (the trio has its own, fresh approach to collective improvising), tunes by Bill Evans (Your Story, offered here as a tribute to Paul Motian, for whom this tune was a favourite) and by George Russell (Event VI from Living Time, another piece associated with Evans), Danish composer Carl Nielsens Oft Am I Glad, a Norwegian hymn (in an arrangement by Anders Jormin and folk singer Sinikka Langeland), contemporary composition by Norways Ola Gjeilo, a Wolf Biermann protest song, Argentine composer Ariel Ramírezs folkloric La Peregrinación, and more. Wide-ranging repertoire has become a hallmark of Bobo Stenson recordings. But its not just the eclecticism that is striking: Bobo Stenson, Anders Jormin and Jon Falt take their far-flung sources and make of them an organic music that sings with its own voice.

Review

Mr. Stenson makes fairly sublime piano trio records without over-arranging, overplaying or over-bandleading. In his mid-60s now, he s the repository of half a century of the development of free jazz, in particular the European post-1960s kind, with its folk and classical leanings. Yet he wears it all lightly. In his recent records you don t hear strategies or contentions but a natural working flow. --New York Times

It's been four years since the trio released Cantando, and I was beginning to wonder when we'd hear from them again. But with the release of Indicum, it's easy to say that the wait was more than worth it. The new music is just a pleasure to listen to, always interesting--heady and lyrical and spiritual. What they do with Ave Maria, a traditional Norse folk song, and Ubi Caritas, a Gregorian chant, is sublime, beautiful music that soothes the soul. I would have been satisfied with these two tunes, but there's a lot more, including covers of Bill Evans's Your Story and George Russell's Event VI. Listening to this meticulously well produced recording is a journey worth taking over and over again. The trio's playing never disappoints. Don't be fooled by the plain looking cover or the title. Inside there's a real gem that sparkles in its stark simplicity.

First, I love piano trios. It is the logical unadorned format for music. By restricting to three instruments well known to the audience's ears, the possibility is created for colors to emerge from sources other than the innate timbre of the instruments: for instance, the strength of the compositions themselves, and the peculiar sensitivities of the player present. Stenson has found a brilliant partner of grand musical depth in Anders Jormin whose ocean deep sound pulls poetry from the bass remeniscent of Messrs. Haden and Peacock. Percussionist Jon Falt inspiringly fills the chair previously occupied by the much missed Paul Motian, and Scandinavia's dean of the drums, Mr. Jon Christensen. Cheers to Mr. Falt, not only for his hutzpha, but also for his musicality.

A new Stenson record is an event, a further step in the direction of sensitivity and interplay. We're deeper inside the country Mr. Evans charted 50 years ago, further along the path than Mr. Stenson took us last time. Next time we'll go even further.

8,420 stars for Bobo.

A very limited number of people on this earth would know the names of Bobo Stenson and Anders Jormin. Together with the drummer Jon Faelt, Stenson and Jormin recorded at the same auditorium in Switzerland, with the same recording engineer, their previous ECM album, Cantando. I suggest anyone listening to Indicum should then listen to Cantando, and also to the 2005 ECM album, Goodbye (Stenson-Jormin-Motian). We will miss Paul Motian forever, by the way.These three albums may provide a very nice jazz night for the seasoned listeners or beginners to the Stenson-Jormin duo. Sophistication, purity and playing-in-accord to extremely sweet tunes. Modern jazz at its best. There is one peculiar detail which should be mentioned though: although the previous (December 2007) Cantando the recent (December 2011) Indicum were recorded at the same hall by the same recording engineer, the sound in Cantando is surely more meticulous, detailed and transparent. Recording is still an art and in Indicum it falls behind that of Cantando.

excellent sound
great pianist and orchestral arrangement
enough swing and improvisations but no disturbing dissonances, relaxant, catching harmony
fascinating, airy high quality jazz
under a lyrical appearence (Bobo Stenson) there is a smoldered / active sustained layer of obsessive rhythm kept by Anders Jormin (bass) and Jon Fält (drums)
this CD deserves every cent you spent on

Stenson is never mentioned with the greats (at least in the U. S.) but he deserves to be. Witch it tai to, Stanko in the 90's and his European trios are all worth whatever you pay for them. Trio music of the highest order. While the Evans tune suggests a certain style, Stenson is far more adventurous than this association implies. I've always liked his mix of covers of Latin American songsters, Scandinavian folk, jazz modernists and 20th century classical composers.
