Stefano Battaglia trio - Songways,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Songways (Audio CD)
After his previous trio release from ECM (2011 The River of Anyder), another trio recording from Italian jazz pianist Stefano Battaglia with the same mates (Salvatore Maiore on bass and Roberto Dani on drums). Again a beautiful work that will appeal any lover of contemporary jazz piano with seducing music to discover after repeated listening. While The River of Anyder is very lyrical and still remains Battaglia's most accessible trio recording, Songways is more about atmospheres ranging from melancholy to serenity, with the piano always the central element in the music narration. ECM quality impeccable as usual.
