On this 2nd recording, accordionist
and entertainer Peter Piccini presents himself as a leading instrumentalist
of his jazz trio which includes bass and drums.
This recording consists of 10 tunes,
all composed and arranged by Peter in the jazz-swing style.
My first impression about this band
was that these three instruments blend in together ideally. Although
they are in the "back ground", drums and bass give good foundation.
Their presence adds nicely to the overall sound image, creating
a really "cool" jazz experience. As a listener I really appreciated
that all the instruments were acoustic - no electronic attachments.
The sound and the "feel" of an acoustic band is irreplaceable
to me personally, with all due respect to modern technology.
Secondly, I loved Peter's playing
style. His jazz-swing is mellow, yet full-flavoured and mature
as well as technically clear and crisp. Peter plays with a lot
of style and I enjoyed listening to his recording very much.
