About the album

The jazz piano trio seems forever young. Again and again the bound- aries of the format are pushed and expanded. The piano trio speaks to an audience outside the ranks of regular jazz listeners while also appealing to hardcore aficionados. 

Jazz has become increasingly international. New names don’t necessarily come from the US, and it is a well-established fact that Japan loves piano trios – especially if they play standards. And so, when a Japanese jazz-lover heard the two young Swedes, pianist Magnus Hjorth and bassist Petter Eldh, at a concert at Jazz Cup in Copenhagen, it led to two Japanese tours and a live recording relea- sed exclusively in Japan.

Early in the summer of 2010, the producer Yoko Yoneyama returned to Scandinavia to record the trio with Magnus, Petter and Japanese drummer Kazumi Ikenaga under perfect conditions, because the Japanese not only enjoy Scandinavian musicians, they also share the Scandinavian sound aesthetics.

At the STC Studios in Copenhagen, legendary sound engineer Bjarne Hansen worked wonders, designer Per Arnoldi created the cover artwork, and this intimate, enchanting and organic CD, PLASTIC MOON, is the result of all their combined efforts. Beautiful and virtuosic trio music, played with sensitivity and attentive interplay and a subdued poetic mood, which makes listening a pleasurable experience. Just as a horn player’s tone can touch us immediately, a pianist’s attack determines whether or not we are moved, and with Magnus Hjorth at the piano, Petter Eldh’s lovely bass sound and Kazumi Ikenaga’s intuitive drumming, this music is pure honey and finely tuned moods.

Stunt Records has obtained the European rights... why should we cheat ourselves of this great listening experience? Enjoy!
