MARTIN PICKETT GROUP / Lyric Pieces (Slam Productions)
Ce groupe dirigé par le pianiste britannique Martin Pickett est en fait le trio de jazz créatif 3BPM, augmenté de deux cuivres, soit le trompettiste Steve Waterman et le tromboniste Mark Bassey. Huit pièces d’un jazz mélodique parfois feutré mais qui sait s’emballer (“East of Evesham”, où les cuivres brillent particulièrement). Agréable.
This group led by UK pianist Martin Pickett is actually creative jazz trio 3BPM augmented by two horn players: trumpeter Steve Waterman and trombonist Mark Bassey. Eight pieces of melodic jazz, in the softer range, though the music can grow excited (“East of Evesham,” where the brass players particularly shine). Enjoyable. François Couture
