Vassilis Tsabropoulos: pianoArild Andersen: double bassJohn Marshall: drumsArild Andersen’s trio emphasises the writing and playing of Greek pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos, whose melodic improvising and sense of form are influenced by his background as a classical musician. Tsabropoulos’s tunes, and his arrangement of Ravel here, cast the jazz ?piano trio? genre in another light ? as do his contributions to Andersen?s pieces and the collective improvisation ?European Triangle’. Arild Andersen’s driving bass and John Marshall’s inventive drums give the music its sense of propulsion. Recorded 2003.
