About the album

Three of Europe’s finest instrumentalists have once gain joined forces. With their new release “Space is the Place”, the musicians explore their new found haven. A haven in which the music on this CD was created. Not as “classical” free jazz, but more as subtle tonal art that is original, spontaneous, natural and free. All 11 tracks on the CD were recorded at The Village Recoridng Studio in Copenhagen on June 5th 2011 immediately after the trio’s concerts at Jazzhus Montmartre. Carsten Dahl- one of Scandinavia’s leading pianists has played with Ed Thigpen, Benny Golson, Eddie Gomez etc. Arild Andersen (bass) and Jon Christensen (drums) have both played a number of years, as members of the Jan Garbarek’s quartet, and are some of Europe’s most sought after sidemen. The music on this CD is improvisational music in it’s purest form. Music that gives the listener the opportunity to enjoy the open SPACE, in which the music was created.

Der 'Hausdrummer' von ECM, Jon Christensen, trifft auf den 'Hausbassisten' von ECM, Arild Andersen. Dazu kommt Carsten Dahl, vielleicht Dänemarks bester Jazzpianist. Und dessen fein ziselierte Kompositionen. In dieser Kombination wird aus der Massenware Pianotrio dann doch wieder ein seltenes und unbedingt empfehlenswertes musikalisches Kleinod, das man sich nicht entgehen lassen darf. Virtuosität ist hier selbstverständliche, aber nicht hervorgehobene Grundlage für eine der schönsten Piano-Trio-Aufnahmen des Jahres.

The clear powerful presence of eachvoice, independently to each other, and yet in a colorful conversation
