About the album

Antwerp bassist, Piet Verbist, has been a central figure in the Belgian jazz scene for decades. With his fifth album on Origin, Verbist turns to the guitar trio format and rekindles his long-time connection with guitarist Hendrik Braeckman, a regular with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra and a fellow force in modern jazz circles. Along with the creative interplay from drummer Lionel Beuvens, the trio unravels an intimate set of originals - along with Charlie Parker's "Cheryl" and Monk's "Pannonica" - building broad atmospheres of color, groove and mood. "Verbist's compositions...give compelling testimony to the ways musical friendships can last a lifetime—and how serendipity, inspiration, and a deep dedication to the music can create a spark when friends' paths do eventually cross." - DOWNBEAT
Der Antwerpener Bassist Piet Verbist ist seit Jahrzehnten eine zentrale Figur in der belgischen Jazzszene. Mit seinem fünften Album auf Origin wendet sich Verbist dem Format des Gitarrentrios zu und knüpft an seine langjährige Verbindung mit dem Gitarristen Hendrik Braeckman an, der regelmäßig mit dem Brussels Jazz Orchestra auftritt und eine feste Größe in modernen Jazzkreisen ist. Zusammen mit dem kreativen Zusammenspiel des Schlagzeugers Lionel Beuvens entwickelt das Trio ein intimes Set von Eigenkompositionen - zusammen mit Charlie Parkers "Cheryl" und Monks "Pannonica" - und baut dabei breite Atmosphären aus Farbe, Groove und Stimmung auf. "Verbists Kompositionen ... legen ein überzeugendes Zeugnis davon ab, wie musikalische Freundschaften ein Leben lang halten können - und wie Zufälle, Inspiration und eine tiefe Hingabe an die Musik einen Funken erzeugen können, wenn sich die Wege von Freunden schließlich doch kreuzen." - DOWNBEAT

Thelonious Monk

The most important jazz musicians are the ones who are successful in creating their own original world of music with its own rules, logic, and surprises. Thelonious Monk, who was criticized by observers who failed to listen to his music on its own terms, suffered through a decade of neglect before he was suddenly acclaimed as a genius; his music had not changed one bit in the interim. In fact, one of the more remarkable aspects of Monk's music was that it was fully formed by 1947 and he saw no need to alter his playing or compositional style in the slightest during the next 25 years.
