The Invariant

2017: The third Trio Cd

The third Trio recording features again Owen Howard - Drums und Antonio Miguel - Bass and presents it from a new perspective. Brilliant and virtuoso the piano parts, the bass Bass powerful but light, electrifying the drums - still everything sounds homogenous and flowing.

Equilibrium

2012: The second Trio Cd

„Equilibrium“ is the ECM debut of a German/American/Spanish trio,which through frequent touring has grown into a remarkably tight and stylistically unique unit in recent years.
Fueled by the tension created through the contrasting styles of pianist Benedikt Jahnel (whose approach is characterised by a heigtened interest in rhythmic subdivisions) and drummer Owen Howard (who, in Jahnels words, “treats and perceives rhythmic phrases as melodic lines without fixed micro units”), and with bass player Antonio Miguel often the musical mediator, the group’s sound draws subtly from classical influences as well as contemporary concepts of groove.
