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.

A new book by the pianist-composer Nik Bärtsch is to be issued by Swiss publisher Lars Müller in May.

Based on Bärtsch and his wife Andrea Pfisterer-Bärtsch's background as performers in live music and as aikido practitioners, Bärtsch, quoted by the publisher, comments: “Imagine a composer as an engineer, listen with all your senses like a martial artist, train your sense of tempo, time and timing like a drummer, act with a partner like a unit.”

Listening: Music Movement Mind, a series of illustrated essays, interviews, exercises and games Müller note also ''documents the stages of Bärtsch’s musical development.''

Ahead of publication Bärtsch solo piano album Entendre is to be released by the ECM label on 19 March.
