LIONEL HAAS TRIO “Going and Going”

 

 

Lionel Haas — piano
Guiseppe Botigliari — bass
Tomas Hobzek — drums
Tgo­mot­so Tsat­si — vocal
Label: Surge Records — Lionel Haas

Con­ti­nu­ity, ener­gy, flow, relentlesness … such are the things that the title track stands for. Keep the music Going and Going, that is the mot­to that pianist Lionel Haas went by , as he com­piled this selec­tion of orig­i­nals and stan­dards, diverse in style, feel and tem­po.
It’s not always about rein­vent­ing the wheel, it’s also about keep­ing the wheel rolling. And in order to do that, you need an engine strong enough for that task, one that is effi­cient, yet not intru­sive.
Drum­mer Tomas Hobzek and bass play­er Giuseppe Bot­tiglieri posess excact­ly those attrib­ut­es by doing their parts in mak­ing each track a unique lis­ten­ing expe­ri­ence — whether it is the straight for­ward swing of the above-men­tioned title track, the seren­i­ty of the clas­sic piece, “Like Some­one in Love”, the pas­sion­ate rhythms of “Cubano Chant” and “Magreb” or the sould­ful sounds of “Day of Reck­on­ing”.
Not to for­get the  vir­tu­oso vocal sounds of Kgo­mot­so Tsat­si, giv­ing a cer­tain Cole Porter clas­sic an entire­ly new touch and, togeth­er with Lionel Haas, cre­at­ing some­thing as com­pelling as “Unchar­tered”.
