Recorded in concert at New Year's Eve 1995 (/1996) in New York City.
What a concert...
The CD has been ordered in the meantime.

Love it.

Amazing.

RAGINI TRIO - RAGINI TRIO

  • ragini trio: ragini trio
        (2013, cd, bel, werf records)
The Belgian Ragini Trio has two albums out, their eponymous 2013 album (pictured above), and the "Peace The New Jazz" album from 2019 (that I talked about earlier).

Superb stuff.
The thing that surprised me the most was that 7 out of the 9 tunes on this album were Indian traditionals that had been reworked by Nathan Daems, Lander Gyselinck and Marco Bardoscia: re-arranged and used as a vehicle for their improvisations.
I just love this.
