Yes & No
This superb Trio is a culmination of fine Sydney musicians playing their own unique style of jazz. Their 'Cool School' sound is a sophisticated blend of styles of past masters and contemporary hip, mellowed and matured by the skill of three talented players of the medium. In the loving hands of these highly experienced artists, this very special sound is spiced with a youthful edge which will inspire in equal measure the jaded of devotees and freshest of newcomers alike. Theirs is a true expression of jazz. What The Reviews Have Said Sydney Morning Herald 'First and foremost is the pervading sense of understatement. This has always characterised the work of pianist Michaal Bartholomei, and here drummer Paul Joseph and bassist Breendan Clarke show themselves to be similarly disposed. It is a clever way of making the songs live again,The music is full of hints and subtleties, where others might use an all-guns blazing approach - John Shand Music Scene, Sunshine Coast Daily 'This is a once a year album of superb piano trio jazz. It's rarely that one comes across an album that will please such a variety of listeners without compromising'. - Andrew Tucker Canberra Times 'Lilting, swinging basically baslladic jazz played by three greatly respected musicians makes this a pleasant experience indeed.' - Michael Foster.
