Instantly recognizable Eldar punctuation. Forget base jumping, this is bass chasing.
Eldar's Breakthrough, recorded at Avatar Studios in New York City, releases April 9. Like the 26-year-old's 2009 disc Virtue, it features his long-standing touring trio with bassist Armando Gola and drummer Ludwig Afonso. Breakthrough breaks through to reinforce just how powerful and poignant a road tested jazz trio of young lions can be. Captured live in the studio, Breakthrough exudes compositional brilliance, improvisation and interplay. The trio pushes the envelope on Eldar's "Point of View Redux."
Point Of View Redux; Somebody Loves Me; Breakthrough; What'll I Do; Morning Bell; In Pursuit; No Moon At All; Hope; Tokyo Pulse; Blink; Good Morning Heartache.
Eldar Djangirov: piano; Armando Gola: bass; Ludwig Alfonso: drums; Chris Potter: tenor saxophone (3); Joe Locke: vibraphone (10).
