With this project, Thomas Rückert (p) is realizing a long-cherished wish to play his new program with Thomas Morgan (b) and Fabian Arends (dr).

Thomas Morgan is featured on many CDs from the ECM label, e.g. working with Paul Motian and Jakob Bro. Fabian Arends have been valued trio partners for some time. Fabian is one of the most sought-after drummers on the German jazz scene.

"This is a special trio. Three playing as one in a quiet intensity that grows with each track. From the inward ruminations expressed in LEELA, the reminiscences on the old standard BILL, the humor in FAST FOOT, the searching improvisations of Lee Konitz's SUBCONCIOUS LEE, the tender painting of PIA, to the beautiful and apt closing track MOMA, this trio explores music that has more to do with communicating feelings and emotion rather than empty technical display! A very satisfying album. Bravo!"
