Tim Allhoff Trio - There Will Be Light (UNIT RECORDS 2017)

Two-time winner of the prestigious ECHO JAZZ, winner of the NEW GERMAN JAZZ AWARD and a welcomed guest at many renowned festivals and stages - German pianist Tim Allhoff's Trio is undeniably a constant magnitude on the national jazz scene. The »ZEIT« proclaims »Intelligent Music for the Masses«, the »Sueddeutsche Zeitung« cheers: »Yes, this is jazz! And what jazz it is!« On their fourth release "There will be light", the band once again demonstrates their mutual attachment and understanding, extraordinary interplay and individual class.

After the first three successful Trio-albums, the three companions return to straight acoustic sound on the brand new release, except for the Fender Rhodes, which delightfully appears on some tracks. Apart from a few arrangements of jazz standards and pop songs, this album features mainly original compositions by the bandleader Tim Allhoff.
