The Knife Ben Win­kle­man Trio Jaz­zhead

Ben Winkel­man, for­merly of Mel­bourne and based in New York since 2010, has just re­leased his fourth trio al­bum, this one recorded in and in­spired by New York. His first, Stomps, Pieces & Vari­a­tions, ap­peared on Jaz­zhead in 2005. A na­tional tour pro­mot­ing the new al­bum is un­der way this month.

Winkel­man’s play­ing cer­tainly has evolved since he moved to the US, but he re­mains in­ter­ested in Afro-Cuban, Brazil­ian and klezmer mu­sic — the last a style of Jewish tra­di­tional mu­sic of­ten played at wed­dings — as well as clas­si­cal mu­sic, and in­cor­po­rates th­ese in­flu­ences in his trio set­ting.

The 13 orig­i­nals demon­strate Winkel­man’s com­mand of var­i­ous jazz pi­ano ap­proaches: Sil­via
