PEDRO NEVES TRIO ~ HINDRANCES
PORTA JAZZ 090 ~ PORTUGAL ~ Jazz

Recorded: 2022 Released: 2022

This is the fourth album by Portuguese pianist / composer Pedro NevesFind albums by this artist and his trio with bassist Miguel AngeloFind albums by this artist and drummer Jose MarruchoFind albums by this artist. The album presents eight original compositions, all by the leader.

The album is mostly well within classic mainstream Jazz piano trio idiom, with excellent compositions and superb playing, but offers also refreshing excursions into more open territory, which makes things even more interesting.

The music offers deeply melodic, melancholic vistas, which are developed slowly and delicately, as if hesitantly, but remain always highly aesthetic and captivating. Neves is a charming storyteller and songweaver, like some of the best classic piano Masters, who manages to avoid confusing simplicity and directness with triviality. His melodies often surprising with unexpected twists and turns, landing safely back on the beat just at the right time.

The trio sounds perfectly balanced, with the rhythm section being supportive and cooperative at all times. Strong bass pulsations keep the music flowing at the right pace and harmonic unity and the drums, ever so slightly back in the mix, ornament the music with rhythmic adornments. Beautifully recorded, this is a true delight for classic Jazz piano trio fans.

Overall, this is a delightful album from start to finish, which creates a relaxed and caressing atmosphere, so much needed in this time of perpetual noise, and is still able to carry a highly musical message, which goes straight into the heart. Wholeheartedly recommended!

The album is a limited number edition and my copy is 286/300 ;)
