Into the music, Echos. A rhapsody, a thrill, no fear of overstatement. Keith Jarrett-meets-Vijay Iyer on 'Royal Star', a word too here for the Palle Danielsson-like dreaming of the Frisellian bassist Thomas Morgan, their rapport a pas de deux of significance like the ignition of some sort of extra sensory perception. You'd swear there is even a kind of ectoplasm. Connoisseur stuff obviously you will know probably instantly. But it goes all the way through to the last note of the last tune. Pianist Dahveed Behroozi is a child of the 1980s from San José who went to the Manhattan School of Music and later Brookyln College. The drummer in this piano trio for the ages? No less than the Broadbentian, jazz fan cult hero Billy Mintz, a latterday Paul Motian as he cascades and steals away. It is very hard and a fruitless pursuit truth be told because there is no real need to describe the appeal here. And yet that mystery yields thoughts of modality, tonal repose when the ideas unpeel, salted crucially by dissonance, slow, abstract lines (eg 'Chimes Variation' the very best track) that all melt to mean something.
On Sunnyside out on 4 June. Dahveed Behroozi, top
