'Closer,' in parts like the closeness of a troll, in others, with unsurety, slowness, care. It baffles and wisps.
"Closer" is the first track from Iro Haarla, Ulf Krokfors, and Barry Altschul's album "Around Again -- The Music of Carla Bley," out February 15, 2019 via TUM records. The album presents a collection of composer and pianist Carla Bley's compositions in new interpretations and continues pianist Haarla and bassist Krokfors' many collaborations over the last two decades, introducing in the mix drummer Altschul, who originally recorded many of the featured compositions with pianist Paul Bley's trio more than 50 years ago.
