Smetana / Suk / Novak: Piano Trios
Beauty & Truth
Joachim Kuhn is a German pianist of world class, and a stand-alone figure in European jazz. He shows absolutely no signs either of slackening or of surrendering to his age- he is in his early seventies. Kuhn’s musical curiosity is as boundless as it always was, and his urge to keep creating new music is undimmed. It seems as if for him to stand still would be to go backwards. He lives in a finca in a remote part of Ibiza, overlooking the Mediterranean, where he is to be found either at the piano or dipping into his vast library of music. For “Beauty & Truth” he and producer Siggi Loch have made a selection of new and old pieces, reaching out into unfamiliar repertoire, and recorded them with the new trio. “These are strong melodies which can be given a really distinctive shape, like for example Blues for Pablo by Gil Evans,” he explains. “The secret of that piece lies in just five notes, but they are the key to unlock a whole musical cosmos.” Kuhn’s original compositions on “Beauty & Truth” captivate the listener with catchy melodies with the character of earworms, which serve as jumping-off points for his improvising adventures. There is “Because of Mouloud,” which ahs becoming something of a Joachim Kuhn hit. There is also “Transmitting,” a spacious ...

Joachim Kuhn New Trio: Love & Peace
Joachim Kuhn New Trio: Love &
The wisdom of old age meets the tempestuousness of youth, wrote Der Spiegel, describing the meeting of generations in Joachim Kuhns trio with Chris Jennings and Eric Schaefer- both are around 30 years younger than he is. And it is also an apt way to describe how both tendencies coexist in the 73-year old jazz pioneers own playing. His gaze is directed to the future, he has the history of jazz behind him, and he never kow-tows to convention. This piano genius loves freedom and fantasy, driven by the imperative to keep discovering the new. If the Joachim Kuhn New Trio is his most recent adventure story, then Love & Peace is its second chapter. I have found a new dream team, and they inspire me in a completely new way, he says of this ensemble which formed in 2015. Only if you live freely can you really improvise freely, says Kuhn. For several years he has been putting everything in place to ensure his own personal and creative freedom at his finca on Ibiza. With Love & Peace his New Trio has once again succeeded in breaking into new territory. Joachim Kuhns potent creative will, unbridled love for music and inner peace reside at the heart of this album.
