Burnside Album Details

Gajo, Achille Trio, Blue Sand

Achille Gajo is a wild horse that has been waiting in the corral for too long! This is a defining moment for the Italian pianist as he is joined by Jean-Jacques Avenel and John Betsch in their debut album as a trio. Jean-Jacques and John have been long-time rhythm section musicians for the Steve Lacy Trio, and the bond and rapport between the two of them has always appeared effortlessly in their music. "Blue Sand" is a jazz recording that charms with musical virtuosity and artistry. Without relying on complex forms and interplays, this music speaks directly to your heart. It is instrumental music that tells stories without lyrics and touches our souls without pretense.
