Wow. Just a beautiful tune just dripping with dramatic tension. Collin is one more of the excellent pianists joining the pantheon of the modern jazz new piano trio style. Highly recommended.
French-born pianist Romain Collin introduces an evocatively textured, melodically luxuriant sound on his new Palmetto album The Calling. The album’s title track, an insistent, almost incantatory minimalist theme that builds to an ambiguously pacific resolution, captures Collin at his most cinematic, a new breed of piano player redefining the trio format.
