EDITORS’ NOTES

It’s rare for three master jazz musicians to see a band concept through for nearly 30 years. This inspired trio’s 12th release (and second for the Pirouet label) is a gem full of lyricism and restraint, but also of characteristic fiery swing and knotty harmonic logic. Goldings’ Hammond organ wizardry, Bernstein’s cool depth of tone and melodic wisdom on guitar, Stewart’s dynamically alert drumming: It’s a unique alchemy, whether they’re interpreting Carla Bley and Wayne Shorter or premiering originals, including Goldings’ crafty Steely Dan homage, “Fagen.”
