|ROBERT ROOK TRIO|
Rook (1966) is a phenomenon on the piano. Modern, versatile and
rhythmically very sharp, he has the tools to make each improvisation a
real adventure. Being present at a live concert makes you experience the
force of this brilliant and genuine piano player, all the way from a slow
very tense ballad to aggressive and exciting up tempo pieces (in fact more
often both ambiences meet in the same song).
chose Thomas Andersen and Dick Verbeeck as the perfect counterforce to his
dynamic approach. They know just when and how to follow him in his
exploration of rhythm and harmony or at other times provide him with
subtle, yet hard-swinging counterpoint.
trio moves as one organic whole. Jazz tradition is not abandoned or
forgotten, and still completely new ways are entered.
