Pierre de Bethmann, piano; Benjamin Henocq, drums;
Christophe Wallemme, bass
recorded July/August 1997 in France
This is the second release by this accomplished trio which covers twelve original compositions by these three classically trained musicians.
The playing is of the highest quality in an ultra modern style with unfamiliar themes, which makes listening to this CD a feat of concentration. The music itself is enjoyable and exciting in places, but it occasionally goes into overdrive making your listening enjoyment a degree more hard won.
Certainly this recording deserves serious consideration.
