Shimmering like Satie before the Leonard Cohen-esque theme takes hold 'Country Road' is from the latest solo piano release by the Swedish pianist Martin Tingvall out later this month, Tingvall, leader of the hit Martin Tingvall Trio who made their UK live debut at Pizza Express Jazz Club in 2012, is one of Europe's most individual jazz stylists.

'Yellow Fields' also delivered in a very plain fashion sees the jazz language largely shorn. Tingvall has a highly accessible style and finds expresssion and lilting meaning in his sound, complete at more ecstatic points even with a Jarrettonian nasal vocalisation that you will easily discern interpolating on 'Yellow Fields' around the 1:28 mark for instance, that lift these pieces out of the ordinary. The melancholia and that sheer pain he conjures like salt to sprinkle on a seemingly chocolate box surface well suit these dread times.
