Reviews of “Trio” w Kenny Wollesen & Tony Scherr

July 5th 2013

Press Quotes from “Trio”
“a subdued and elegant new set featuring interpretations of Bob Dylan songs, as well as his own engaging originals.” (Time Out New York)

” a mesmerizing level of intensity at low volume and slow pace”.  (jazzword blogspot)

“Denmark’s Nikolaj Hess has combined with Scherr and Woolesen to produce an album that emphasizes the lyrical and poetic, mood-filled and simple, raw, unpolished and yet virtuosity and refined.”  “a delightful, reflective, almost pastoral use of light and shade. If Chopin had been born in New York and received tuition from say Bill Evans or Keith Jarrett he may have sounded like this ” (bebop spoken here UK)

“. Determined, a calculated and perfect for rolling forward, the beautiful rhythmic, melodic rich storytelling and ensemble are in a good balance. Hess’s own compositions alongside, he was taken by the two Bob Dylan composed songs” (jazzrytmit.com Finland)
