Tryptic (Humair/Celea/Couturier) - Paris 2008 (FM/FLAC)

Another edited dime seed here, this time by a great European piano trio: drummer Daniel Humair, longtime important member of the French jazz scene (he celebrated his 70th birthday a couple of weeks ago, on May 23), pianist François Couturier (he's probably best known for his collaborations with oud player Anour Brahem), and bassist Jean-Paul Celea. This is lyrical european chamber jazz of the highest order - check it out, open up your minds and ears and give a chance to something you've never heard yet!
