Biography

The Neil Cowley Trio look, superficially, like a jazz trio, in that they comprise three men making noises on a grand piano (Cowley), a drum kit (Evan Jenkins) and a double bass (newbie recruit Rex Horan). But these noises rarely sound like jazz. Their fourth album, The Face Of Mount Molehill, features power pop songs without words, soundtracks in search of a film, exploratory minimalist ...

Product Description

Product Description

The big success story of 2007 and winner of the BBC Jazz Award for Album Of The Year returns with their much anticipated second release. "Post-jazz", "punk-jazz", "call-it-what-you-like-jazz", one thing's for sure, today's generation of mavericks are informed by jazz, but channel the energy of rock and the surging dynamics of dance music to create a new sound, and stretch the envelope further. At the vanguard of this new scene is The Neil Cowley Trio, whose 2006 debut 'Displaced' was released to huge critical acclaim from across the musical spectrum. This follow up album features Cowley's long-time collaborators Richard Sadler on bass and Evan Jenkins on drums. As the title suggests it is marked with energy, adrenalin and wit; an album of massive dynamic range and contrasts. Yet Cowley wears the "post jazz" label lightly. Neil expresses a wide gamut of emotions through his music, so there is often a sensitivity and romanticism to his compositions. Tracks: His Nibs / Dinosaur Die / Scaredy Cat / Ginger Sheep / Clumsy Couple / Captain Backfire / Well / We Are Here to Make Plastic / Synaesthesia Traffic / Streets Paved With Half Baguettes Pt 2.

BBC Review

This is the follow-up to Displaced, British pianist Neil Cowley's 2006 debut disc. It exudes a strong sense of the trio having strengthened a particular style, even if this involves a grafting of traits enjoyed by e.s.t. and The Bad Plus. The latter's anthemic tendencies gush all over His Nibs, providing this album opener with a sturdy, nay bullying, illustration of power trio potentiality. Like many others who are having their jazz cake and eating it, Cowley is cleverly laying his classicist moves over a driving rock beat, with drummer Evan Jenkins forever threatening a fully metronomic conversion. He's always slyly funking up, besides adding enough fidgety syncopation content, so that the hardcore beatniks don't become too alienated. It's a successful approach, as pedantic music critics are the only folks who will nowadays still insist on all of this compartmentalising for rock, jazz, funk et al.

Call this pomp-jazz, canny but not compromised. Cowley likes to hammer, in the frilly-cuff fashion. Dinosaur Die builds up a rising curve of repetitive minimalism, then Ginger Sheep decides on a knees-up vaudeville romp, like a Keystone Cops chase theme. The evocative images remain for Clumsy Couple, which is suitably ungainly, painting scenes of a faded ballroom triumph, now a decayed memory. We Are Here To Make Plastic is an agitated combination of Motörhead bonce-banging and the rippling player piano monomania of avant composer, Conlon Nancarrow. Cowley's very usage of the term 'trio' when naming his band suggests that he's quite happy to be viewed as a jazzman. Only the hoariest old relics from within that scene could possibly object to the unsuitability of either his compositions or his chops. --Martin Longley

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As a Jazz fan who loves everything from Count Basie to Keith Jarrett I wondered if I'd hear anything that I'd consider moved the art form along at all. Having just bought this, and already having a copy of Radio Silence I think I've found an artist who has just done that. Whether it will be recognised as doing that in the history of the music is doubtful but I digress.

This is a fabulous collection of Jazz trio tracks that has influences from certain elements of modern pop music (the sonic side I suppose) as well as 'classical' and more traditional Jazz elements. The range of styles is incredible from the rampaging and funky "His Nibs" to the musically witty stylings (think of something like West Side Story) of "Ginger Sheep" and the beautiful "Well", which could be a based on a well (excuse pun) known Jazz standard, but probably isn't!

It certainly is a genre breaking album, as it will appeal to more than just Jazz fans, and its an album that combines great musicianship with a modern attitude of what can be done with just a trio. The answer is a lot!

This is an unusual album... it's jazz, but not as you know it. I can even hear hints of Tori Amos on 'Well' and Radiohead on 'Dinosaur Die'. The musicianship of these three is just stunning and what really strikes me so much about the album is the production, it's so beautifully engineered, so flawless, it's a treat every time it's played. All the tracks are good, some more beautiful than others, with great, soaring musical landscapes that Cowley manages to conjure up on the piano. Really great drumming and double bass too. Highly recommended.

I'd never heard of this band until I saw them on "Later with Jools holland".
I bought this album purely on hearing "His Nibs" being performed on the program. It was energetic and the way Cowley bounces around on his seat and really conveys his passion and love for music.

I knew instantly that there was something special and different about this Jazz/Rock trio, so instanty went online and bought the album which I never usually do.

When I received the album, I played it, loved it and played it again...twice.
Being a Jazz trumpet player myself I loved this music with its wide variety from Tasteful Jazz, Rock and Soul (No horrible Beat-bop here!). This music is almost a new kind of Jazz. Its energetic in areas and in others big open chord heavy beautifulness. The melodies and use of catchy hooks keep your head bopping and its great to cook food to (as I found out!).

This album has balls, it has attitude, it'll knock you for six and leaves you smiling in awe. 5 of out 5 here

Format: Audio CD
Like all good music that is not commercial or mainstream I stumbled on this trio after reading a review in the Sunday Times & listening to some clips of tracks on the internet. This album is magically impressive if you enjoy jazz, funk & rock because this band combine all three elements in my opinion. Funked up hard bopping jazz, very percussive and power driven but with some subtle melodies thrown in to break up the relentless pace. This is not safe, smooth jazz but has an edge and a tension. Kind of reminds me of EST but different enough to sound different and Pat Metheny Group in their heavier guises but without the electrics. An album of undoubted energy, verve, funk and enough melody to keep it all together. Not late listening but more for those moments when you want to let it bleed and rock. I'm more than pleased I bought this outstanding album.

Love this album. It's like you walked into your fave bar that has jazz combo's from time to time and this band are just jamming out a few numbers. So atmospheric ..and you want to hear that track again ...and the next one ...and that one ...then you've had the album four years before you know it!
