Bollani, Stefano (piano) - Stone in the Water

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar


"Tillsammans med de danska musikerna Jesper Bodilsen och Morten Lund, bas respektive trummor, åstadkommer han (Stefano Bollani) musik som tagen från ljumma kvällar vid Medelhavet med en stilla vind som doftar hav och jasmin. Skickliga musiker som valt musik som lyfter farm känslan lika mycket som tekniken."
(Upsala Nya Tidning)

Stefano Bollani: piano; Jesper Bodilsen: double-bass; Morten Lund: drums

"Stone in the Water", recorded in New York last October, is the first of Stefano Bollani's ECM recordings to feature his "Danish Trio", a group that already has six years of playing experience behind it. The Italian pianist first met bassist Jesper Bodilsen and drummer Morten Lund in 2002 when Enrico Rava won the JazzPar prize. Invited to put together an ensemble for the award shows and a short tour, Rava chose Bollani as one of his fellow soloists, while the prize committee proposed Bodilsen/Lund for the rhythm section. Bollani recalls that he felt an immediate musical connection with the Danes. "We had such a great time and enjoyed playing together so much that we wanted to continue, as a trio, which we did the following year. So at first we toured in Denmark, and then throughout Scandinavia, and then everywhere." Material on "Stone in the Water" spans original pieces by Bollani and Bodilsen, tunes by Caetano Veloso and Antonio Carlos Jobim and Poulenc's "Improvisation 13 en la mineur" - it's a wide range of material, unified by the gracefulness of Bollani's touch and the feeling of freedom in the trio playing. The group sound is supple, subtle, flowing, and thoroughly musical. Stefano Bollani: "There is a special chemistry in the trio, difficult to pin down in words. We're all about the same age [Bollani and Lund were born in 1972, Bodilsen in 1970], we all grew up listening to the same records, have a similar range of interests...that's part of it. We never have to discuss how to play a piece of music, which in my experience is very unusual, and there's a shared understanding that the way we play the songs can sometimes be more important than the material itself. One thing I know for sure is that every note I play is going to be listened to, and developed by Jesper and Morten. And that's rare, because we live in an age of highly-gifted jazz soloists who listen mostly to themselves! In this group, listening is central, and each of us is always caring, in every moment, about what the others are doing. Everybody is always focused on the total group sound. It's my ideal of how jazz group-playing should be.
