Just had some fabulous days now in May in Lugano recording a new album with the Mats Eilertsen Trio for ECM.

Absolutely stunning playing from Harmen Fraanje and Thomas Strønen and a truly great experience as always with producer Manfred Eicher and technician Stefano Amerio.

Looking forward to share the music with you all!

“with Rubicon, Eilertsen steps confidently up to the spotlight as leader, delivering an album that, with lessons learned from his existing body of work, opens his music up to even greater interpretive possibilities than ever before”

Review in AllAboutJazz

 

“The band swings with a seductive lightness, and the quality of the tunes and the ever-changing tonal interest keep lifting the predominantly low-lit mood”

Review in The Guardian
