Om “Sails Set“:

 

Kaptein Eilertsen set segl

“Mats Eilertsen har mange jarn i elden, og han leier meir enn eitt av Norges beste jazzband.”

“Utruleg vakre songar…  ….med sterkt resultat.”

R. Helgheim, Dagsavisen

 

“Denne trioen leverer kollektive improvisasjoner med en uvanleg idérikdom og formsans”

“Plata har knapt ein likegyldig augneblink”

L.Mossafinn, Dag og Tid

 

“Vi får høre tre glimrende musikere og i flere passasjer når de en høyere enhet som resulterer i vakker, inspirert og energisk musikk”

T. Lundemo, Adressa

 

Mats Eilertsen Trio, Sets Sail: Bassist Eilertsen has concocted an intriguing album, and he achieves it through some seriously delicate subtleties. He’s joined by pianist Harmen Fraanje and drummer Thomas Stronen (recently a Jazz Pick with his duo Food with Iain Ballamy). For the most part, this is a series of short tracks, almost like a parade of interludes, and each give brief glimpses of restrained beauty. Stronen’s percussion is often unexpected, and it’s his surprising choices that prevents this album from ever getting sleepy. An album that shimmers with emotion, and keeps some of that emotion hidden, which, ultimately, leads to much of this album’s intrigue. Just a beautiful recording. Recommended.
