3,5 stars for 3'Ain in Jazz Journal
3,5 Stars for 3'Ain's first EP from Gareth Thomas in the British Jazz Journal!
"The absence of drums contributes to a music that is open and uncluttered, allowing the listener to really appreciate the interplay and musical dialogue between Martini and Maris. But where some rhythmic backbone is required, Otto Kint steps in with his double bass, as in the percussive opening to Njord Puffin.
As an album 3’Ain is let down slightly by its lack of cohesion. Tracks end rather abruptly which can spoil the flow of the overall album ... However, as a series of musical vignettes, each track stands up well on its own."
But isn't that exactly what EP's are for? :)
