Bobo Stenson Trio/Golden Rain/Serenity
Friday, December 18, 2009
I have been listening this week to the Bobo Stenson trio's Serenity. It is a superb recording, especially if you like the Scandinavian sound. I do. It's moody and impressionistic, which is exactly the description of a long hallway in my heart. It is also as vibrant and as alive as your own love's breast. This is the kind of music that makes me want to live forever.
Here is my favorite cut from the album. Think of sitting on a wooden bench, on a warm evening, as the rain begins to fall but the sunlight is still visible on the horizon.
If you like this cut, buy the album. It is available from iTunes. You might also check out the Esbjörn Svensson Trio. See my post on EST.
