Ones to watch sparkling US-based piano trio Family Plan surface debuting next week with a record of the same name on the go-ahead Endectomorph Music label. The band, bassist Simón Willson, pianist Andrew Boudreau, drummer Vicente Hansen, not afraid of an overdub or three, have been around since 2018 and seem like the complete deal listening to tracks from the album earlier today picking up the thread from last night. Sax player Kevin Sun guests on 'What's Your Fee'. Tunes are very strong and the trio sound as if they are going places given a certain savoir faire that takes prodigious technique for granted and moves to communicate properly beyond. Boudreau is superb, he has an outrageously compelling technique, think Ethan Iverson a little certainly in the voicings of his style on the track with Sun. Willson reminds me stylistically of Jorge Roeder. The album was recorded at the Bunker studio in Brooklyn over a couple of days last October. Family Plan photo: Kyra Smith
