Bobo Stenson Trio

Cantando - Bobo Stenson Trio
ECM 2023 CD 177 5462


Bobo Stenson: piano; Anders Jormin: double-bass; Jon Fält: drums

The reconfigured Bobo Stenson Trio in a performance of characteristically wide arc. Material this time includes original compositions, group improvising and pieces by Peter Eben, Alban Berg, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, and Silvio Rodriguez. Master pianist Stenson, long term bassist Anders Jormin and alertly responsive young drummer Jon Fält have developed a richly detailed sound-world like nothing else in modern jazz – at once an extension of the jazz piano tradition and, with its windows opening onto classical music and world folklore, a force apart from it.

Press Reactions

  • In seinem weiten musikalischen Kosmos spukt auch ein Humorist, ein Liebhaber von scharf gezeichneten, kleinen skurrilen Wendungen und tänzerischer Ausgelassenheit. ... Insgesamt die denkbar bewegendste Piano-Trio-Musik.

    Peter Rüedi, Die Zeit

  • This record, by the Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson, embodies two qualities that usually don’t go together: extreme breadth and extreme humility. ... It’s pulsating, lumpy with long improvised phrases; it’s alive.

    Ben Ratliff, The New York Times

  • Whatever the mood or tempo, Stenson is able to extract his own personal story from each piece in an album that is never less than totally absorbing.

    Stuart Nicholson, Jazzwise

  • ”Det är jazz som förenar ett djuplodande, introspektivt drag med en utsikt mot hela musikhistorien”; (5 out of 5)

    Dagens Nyheter

  • “En av årets bästa jazzskivor”
