Album Review

During the first decade of his recording career, drummer Ari Hoenig appeared on a number of CDs as an effective sideman, while this exciting studio date is only his second disc as a leader. Reunited with pianist Jean-Michel Pilc (a frequent collaborator) and featuring the promising bassist Johannes Weidenmüller, the trio launches into a truly introspective take of "Anthropology" that turns it inside out yet remains very accessible.

One of the most promising jazz percussionists of his generation, Ari Hoenig is worth watching.
