An alienating, evocative, liquid sound: the electronically filtered trumpet in "Waves" opens the new work of Sun Trio, the third CD released on CAM JAZZ after Time Is Now and Dreams Are True. The Finnish trio confirms its being an avid experimenter of sounds, between beautiful moments of calmness and suspension, typical of Nordic jazz, and incursions of intriguing, magnetic rhythms.
I love jazz because anything is possible; it has few rules and the best jazz breaks those ones. I prefer free improv because it doesn't really have any rules at all.
I was first exposed to jazz in my teens (in the late sixties).
The first jazz record I bought was Filles de Kilimanjaro by Miles Davis, shortly followed by Extrapolation by John McLaughlin.
My advice to new listeners is to listen as widely as possible and not to make snap judgments--stick with it.
