"Opmerkelijk is de cohesie binnen het trio."Dr Jazz, 01-8-2021
Pinheiro / Ineke / Cavalli
The Pinheiro-Ineke-Cavalli trio departs from a musical relationship developed in the last five years by the historic Dutch drummer Eric Ineke, the Italian double-bass player Massimo Cavalli and Portuguese guitarist Ricardo Pinheiro. After their cd collaboration as quintet with the famous saxophonist David Liebman and pianist Mário Laginha in Is Seeing Believing? (DBCHR 75224), these three experienced musicians developed a studio trio conversation departing mainly from jazz standards arranged especially for this project. This trio has played several concerts in Portugal that resulted in the development of a group sound that, coming from the jazz tradition, incorporates new and creative ways of approaching jazz repertoire. The international character of this trio brings a fresh, diverse and complying sound that will certainly please jazz afficionados
Opmerkelijk is de cohesie binnen het trio.

The CD opens with ‘You Must Believe in Spring’ by Michel Legrand. Immediately the listener experiences the smooth swing of guitarist Ricardo Pinheiro. He leaves a lot of space between the notes and that makes way for a pleasant swing. All in all, it is a tasteful CD, which fits well with spring.
The combination of Pinheiro, Cavalli and Ineke had worked together before, so their combination on this recording is no accident, but the influence of the music of Bill Evans as heard on their Turn Out The Stars: The Music of Bill Evans certainly results in “something unexpected, unique and marvelous.”

The playing close to the acoustics and the constant warmth of the guitarist offers the music of Bill Evans an ideal setting, faithful to the spirit of the pianist, a context in which his partners, drummer Eric Ineke in particular, blend perfectly.
All the stylistic elements are reproduced here in an exemplary manner, allowing us to enjoy not only a great performance, but also the unique atmosphere we remember from the master's recordings.
