Pablo Held - Glow II (PIROUET RECORDS 2018)

When he recorded Glow with his 10-piece ensemble in 2010, “German piano wonder Pablo Held was only 23 years old…, but he had already earned his place in the pantheon of modern day piano trio leaders… As good as Held’s earlier albums are, they don’t hold a candle to ‘Glow’.” (Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz). Other critics declared that Held had created a “masterpiece” and praised Held for such “enthralling contemporary jazz”. On “Glow II” Held and company continue their incandescent musical explorations.
