THE ART OF JAZZ TRIO
Flip Philipp, feat. Christian Eberle, Florian King

Philipp shows just how closely a vibraphone and a piano can be related when he fills behind the others when they solo. His own solos are very concise, crafted, you might say with no room for sloppy slashing. One is sometime reminded of Lennie Tristano and his single. – Note attack. There is a great
deal of creativity on hand and „Flip’s (A) Train“, for example, is a marvelous break from tradition, giving the warhorse a gentle nudge into other spheres. (Wish someone would do the same for „My Funny Valentine“.) My heart bleeds at the thought that this truly innovative and swinging record may not find the exposure it deserves. Do yourself a favor, this one is really worth having and you will be getting an insight into some of the best, and above all, the most creative of European Jazz.
