Charlie Mariano, Philip Catherine, Jasper van't Hof - Sleep My Love [1978] @ 256 (European modern jazz)

I have posted a few albums with Mariano and Catherine elsewhere in this blog. They were in the context of fusion, heavily relying in electric instruments.

This is different in that it is mainly acoustic and is in a trio setting, much more intimate and personal.

That's not to say that you won't hear an electric piano or guitar, but the use and context are a mile away from Pork Pie's "Transitory" and Michael Gibb's "The Only Chrome Waterfall Orchestra", both of which you'll find in this blog.

A modern jazz album, not a fusion album.

This is about the dymanics between great musicians in a small group setting, their interplay and invention, great stuff.

Here we also get to hear Catherine, the electric bass player. He's good, so good that there is no doubt that he could also have been a very successful bassist.

Enough from me, enjoy.
