What's new in the world of the piano trio? Being released a few days ago is. Not a difficult listen, it's quite light in some ways and very accessible but does not dumb down. Norwegian pianist Eyolf Dale is a virtuoso and this is very much the leader's record rather than the band's or so it seems until you venture further in. Landing in chamber-jazz containing a slightly optimistic air (for instance on 'Northern Brewer') the sound should appeal to anyone into the Swede Jan Lundgren. 'Behind 315' however is darker and more experimental and where Being gets more interesting. My admiration for the record increased the more I listened but I still am not blown away. With Dale are Per Zanussi on double bass + reliably ethereal saw; and Audun Kleive – on drums. Pick of the tracks? 'The Pondering.' On Edition

Coming out on 19 February is the brutal but compelling Seven, the latest from Cameron Graves. Yet another single 'Sons of Creation' from the album is streaming and contributing to the racket in the marlbank listening ashram earlier on in astonishing the resident doves. Pray, is it worth scaling the wall of sound to climb up on and into the cockpit for? Mmm, yes. Might you risk PTSD as a consequence? Mmm, unlikely. Raving along with Graves it's probably not the case that hawkish Colin Cook, however, is playing the geetar with his teeth. But I did wonder. SG
