John Escreet Trio
The pianist's music boasts the kind drama that always pulls you deeper into the action, with tunes like "Somewhere Between Dreaming and Sleeping" allowing agitation and calm to coexist in a poetic way. I dig him with horns, but his work with drummer Tyshawn Sorey and bassist John Hébert is especially powerful. Here, there's a poignant quake to their rumbling, and even when rhapsodic moments arrive, something fierce is in the air.
