|Clean Feed has done those of us on this side of the Atlantic a great favor, once again, by introducing us to the music of Portugal's new jazz artists. Pianist Sassetti is certainly someone that we are all going to hear much from in the future. His compositions have the technical sophistication of Chopin, played with the harmonic intensity of Bill Evans...all supported by the technique that reminds one a great deal of Keith Jarrett.
Sassetti is backed by a very strong rhythm section, especially veteran bassist Carlos Barretto. This trio has been working together for several years, and their tightness vouches for that experience.
Comes with our highest recommendation for an hour of very subtle, sophisticated jazz trio music.
