"I Mean You" by Esbjörn Svensson Trio
Esbjörn Svensson (piano), Dan Berglund (upright bass), and Magnus Öström (drums)
Composed by Thelonius Monk
The sun rises among the dark clouds
The beauty that I have missed for long
People on their feet to celebrate, to rise
Radiating warmth and joy and hope
The world’s greatest gift
And I mean you
'Juuichi' - Colin Vallon Trio / Track of the Day
Today’s pick is a slowly unfolding, endearingly enigmatic piece of music from Swiss pianist Colin Vallon's new trio recording, Le Vent (out on ECM).
And there’s a bonus: the accompanying video, by Fabian Sbarro, is as beautifully crafted and engaging as the music on offer!
To be savoured.
Personnel: Colin Vallon (piano), Patrice Moret (composition/double bass) and Julian Sartorius (drums).
