Wolfgang Dauner Trio – Dream Talk

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“An early session from German pianist Wolfgang Dauner – one with a sound that’s every bit as great as you’d expect from the title! The “dream talk” component here is one that comes from Dauner’s gentle, yet modern approach to the keys – one that’s clearly learning lessons from 50s modernists like George Russell or Bill Evans, but which is stretching out here in some of the bolder freedoms of the European scene at the time – a precursor to later modes on MPS and Saba, but performed here with a bit more careful restraint. The record’s nicely free from some of the overindulgences of some of Dauner’s 70s sides, and is an acoustic effort throughout – extremely imaginative, with a “set free” quality that’s also never too “out”, nor too full of itself – a bit like the best early recordings by Steve Kuhn. Wolfgang’s approach to the keys is nothing less than revelatory – and he receives well matched accompaniment from bassist Eberhard Weber and drummer Fred Braceful.” – Soundohm.
