Pablo Held Trio | Investigations

Written by | New Releases Page

Regarded as one of the most talented and adventurous pianists and improvisers in Europe, Pablo Held released in April 2018 his landmark 10th album Investigations. Featuring long-standing trio of bassist, Robert Landfermann and drummer, Jonas Burgwinkel, the album is his first for British imprint Edition Records. A pivotal album in the trio’s journey, the trio’s adventurous spirit and energy reaches global audiences and with the release of ‘Investigations’ ignite a new wave of interest for a true working band.

Crafted with an alluring blend of elegance, lyricism and sophistication, Investigations is an album that perfectly fuses tradition with modernity, familiarity with exploration and poised nuance with passion and energy. With a deep friendship at its core the trio’s highly personal sound is built on an adventurous spirit and conversational voice that has developed through many years of recording and touring. They are risk-takers and forward-thinkers, always ready to dive into the unknown, continually evolving. It’s this and their uncanny ability to communicate with one voice that has earned them a place as one of stand-out jazz trios in Europe.

Pablo Held is an artist of talent, maturity and sensibility, aware of tradition yet continually looking forward in search of something new. The Pablo Held Trio is exceptional both in its conception and execution; constantly blurring the boundaries of composition and improvisation. Its abstract, emphatic musical conversations coalesce in stories that take alternately tender, serene, and fiery turns. All three are master musicians, adventurous spirits and investigators of new musical horizons. After 12 years of touring, nine highly acclaimed records and remarkable collaborations with jazz greats such as John Scofield and Chris Potter, Investigations is the next exciting step in the trio’s development.
