Format: CD

"Vermillion" is the English word for the color "vermilion" and the name of Kit Downes' new album. The British pianist, who is one of the stars of the young jazz scene in Great Britain, can be heard here once again together with the Swedish bassist Petter Eldh and the British drummer James Maddren. Together, they look beyond the confines of a classical piano trio album, with subtle pieces, surprising twists and a penchant for opposites, which, as we all know, attract.

On his first Piano Trio recording for ECM, Kit Downes, together with bassist Petter Eldh and drummer James Maddren, manages a special tightrope walk between lyrical care and eruptive momentum. The pianist and his longtime musical confidants meet in a way that - creative and condensed at the same time - combines proven idioms of the format with their own ideas in a style exclusive to this threesome. Downes opens a new chapter on "Vermillion", recorded at the Auditorio Stelio Molo in Lugano.
