Dock In Absolute

The second album by Luxembourg trio Dock In Absolute offers further confirmation of their genre-shifting approach to trio jazz, with familiar bop elements intermingled with classical, pop and post-rock elements. Pianist Jean-Philippe Koch’s romantic melodism, electric bassist David Kintziger’s flowing lyricism (which is reminiscent of Steve Swallow) and percussionist Michel Mootz’s approach to the whole kit as an integrated musical instrument yields up an album of sustained and often surprising beauty.  Now regulars in the CAM JAZZ catalogue as well as on the European festival circuit, Dock In Absolute bring an immediately recognisable spin to an otherwise well-worn instrumental combination. This is a group, rather than a collection of individuals, and Unlikely is an album rather than a mere collection of themes. From the heart of Western Europe, a record that gets to the heart of modern music. (Brian Morton)

Recorded in Cavalicco in January 2019 at Artesuono Recording Studio Recording engineer Stefano Amerio
