The album title means ''the water tower'' and the title track comes first of the three tracks (the others are linguistic variants of 'The Thorn Bush'). It's surprising how naturalistic these words are but make no mistake the musical style is very abstract. Invigorating avant sounds in brief from the Oslo-based saxophonist Signe Krunderup Emmeluth and drummer Kresten Osgood (known for his work with Masabumi Kikuchi) in a live recording made at the Koncertkirken in Copenhagen last summer. Emmeluth, top, also has solo sax recording Hi Hello I’m Signe featuring 'Action Painting en Vogue' out via the Relative Pitch label. If you're into Mopomoso flock to this. Out now from Norway's Motvind Records

A superstar trio and not a reinventing the wheel sort of record. Trio certainly has glamour that you just can't bottle. Mainstreamers will like it most, mainstream in the sense of a jazz fan who likes standards done in a very faithful yet not uptight way. But hey anyone into good jazz no matter unless overly-narrow the style penchant will be made up on some level. It is not however super-poetic and certainly follows a different approach to the typical, often stern sounding, European jazz trio if that is your real bag. There is a lot of life to Trio and Vinnie Colaiuta does lethargic ache beautifully on 'Laura'. Best track, but maybe it's because I am a sucker for George Shearing, is 'Conception' right at the beginning. That's a classy way to begin any record.
