The trio Of Lotte Anker/Craig Taborn/Gerald Cleaver was one of the highlights at last weekend's Bohemian National Home Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music in Detroit. I was stunned by this set. I'd heard Lotte before in a trio with Marilyn Crispell and Gerald and thought it was nice enough, but this one took off from minute one. Taborn's hands were a blur at times as he played sometimes furious, sometimes gentle piano stylings that were always creative and serving to shape the music and explore new territories. All three were in excellent form and very complimentary of one another. I've not heard Lotte play the way she did before. It was just excellent!
Noah Howard was also on hand for the festival and despite coming on close to 2am after close to seven hours of music has been presented AND following two sets of Arkestra music, played a very strong trio set with Hakim Jami and Bobby Kapp.
Sounds like a great double bill this Friday.

Lotte is amazing! Her trio with Taborn and Cleaver must be something...
I always miss the real good stuff :-(
