Great melodies here offset nicely by the strings. Only downside is the track Mini Ha Ha which has a most irritating (baby?) sound affect on it and jars after the excellent preceding tracks (Damm it's playing now )
Tempted to dock one star but will settle for reburning this to CD with this track at the end !

Another great album from the Neil Cowley trio. Can't wait til the concert in March when we will get to hear and feel all the magic that you just can't get onto a CD.

I'm on my third playing already and it's only half past eleven on the day of release!!

The Face of Mount Molehill has combined the energy from previous NCT albums - Rooster Was A Witness and the title track being prime examples - yet has some achingly beautiful melodies that give me the goosebumps.

The addition of strings, and other subtle additions (see the "Making Of" video on the NCT web site!) has added another dimension to the superb trio. Some parts take me back to Neil's Pretz album.

The opening "Lament", "Meyer", "Skies Are Rare" ooze with lovely strings - there are hints of Einaudi piano + cello. Hugely uplifting!

Have to say I'm having a little trouble digesting "Fable" with its dischords, and the laughing on "Mini Ha Ha" track is creepy! LOL! Having seen the video there's definitely some Neil Cowley fun and a trifle madness behind the tracks.
UPDATE: Actually, "Fable" is seriously growing on me!!

Top stuff from the trio - toe tapping, head rocking, heart lifting, jazz goodness :-)

...now to see if I can get to any of the gigs!

WARNING: Amazon have _two_ versions of the MP3 album - one has an extra track!! Wish I had noticed this before :-(

Simply an amazing album by simply an amazing. Has quickly become the theme tune to most to most of my current waking life. While I've heard and liked few Trio artists (EST band plus ect.) they tend to after a while end up being hard to differentiate and occasionally nearing towards easy listing material. Neil Cowley Trio however continues to produce ever more distinctive, innovative and beautiful tracks that even after several listens I am picking out more and more detail in the composition. I look forward to their next project with anticipation.

This is an absolutely stunning album from the Neil Cowley trio, this time augmented by strings and guitars.

Musically, the tunes are based around memorable and catchy piano riffs with hints of urgent, rocky rhythms (Such as on Fables) and plenty of build ups to crescendos that then fall away. In amongst this there are gentle, almost pastoral passages, such as the opening track, Lament. Pace and direction change quite often within the songs.

The addition of strings gives the album a classical feel, and fits in well with the dramatic tunes.

A new bass player but still the usual excellence coming through from this Trio. The only thing better than this Trio's recordings is hearing them live.
