Italian pianist Stefano Battaglia's trio received much critical praise for the 2009 ECM recording "The River of Anyder", with Down Beat writing of "novel and utterly delightful lyricism" and hailing it as "one of the year's most beautiful piano recordings: an undercurrent of gentle push-and-pull, flowing beneath its endless wellspring of haunting melodism, gives it its depth and weight, even as is diaphanous interaction suggests an evolving language."

"Songways", recorded in April 2012, is precisely concerned with the further evolution of that musical language. "The new step", Stefano Battgalia explains, represents "a new harmonic balance between archaic modal pre-tonal chant and dances, pure tonal songs and hymns and abstract texture." Songs, chants and dances - each of the forms offers Battaglia and bassist Salvatore Maiore plenty of room to develop lyrical ideas. And, as the trio has developed, an expanded space has opened up for the drums also, giving Roberto Dani opportunities for textural shading and for playing melodically across the kit, hypersensitive to the pitches of drums and cymbals.

For "Songways" the trio returned to Lugano's Auditorio Radiotelevisione Svizzera, with Manfred Eicher producing. The dynamics captured here are those of an improvising trio listening intently and responding to each other in the natural acoustic of an exceptional recital room. As with its predecessor, the new disc takes many of its inspirations from legendary or mythical places in literature or religious and philosophical texts. Battaglia's canvas is broader than 'jazz', and he has always drawn influence also from arts beyond music.
