Beautiful piano trio album, crackling with life and vibrancy. A top-shelf line-up with Spero on piano, Makaya McCraven on drums, and Matt Ulery on bass. Each of the trio members have an excellent release under their own name in 2012. Jazz from the Chicago scene.
"Hills" is the first track on Spero's new album Acoustic. It is a musical painting of my emotions as I motorbiked through the mountains in northern Thailand, after I cut off all my contacts and left the US for a month of soul searching. It is the feeling of breaking above and back down into the layers of clouds, seeing nothing but greenery and nature around you, and the dew evaporating as you begin to see the sun rise over the mountains.
