Amsterdam Jazz Trio (AJ3) – For The Time Being (2004)
AJ3; formerly known as Verpoegen, Verhoeff & Van Der Westen. The album contains 9 studio recorded originals. All pieces are an example of how to use space and movement in drumless jazz. It’s relaxing music; the beautiful sound of the flugelhorn sings over a warm tapistry of guitar and bass with lots of space and suggested rhythm. It’s music you can use to win over non-jazz lovers. Sometimes it relates to Kenny Wheeler’s music or maybe even to Chet Baker but it is definitly European.
