Jiggs Whigham International Trio : Not So Standards
The concept here is to present a few standards as well as original compositions, in a fresh setting combining the essence of the music and improvisations to create spontaneity, magic and surprises. This couldnt have happened without the wonderful musicianship and genius of both German pianist Florian Weber and Rumanian bassist Deceba Badila. Both of these monsters have a nonstop supply of brilliant creativity and incredible facility! Jiggs Whigham
"The first of several trombone-centric jazz albums I'll be reviewing this month is this one from Jiggs Whigham, who leads an unconventional drummerless trio on a program of standards and originals. Working with the outstanding German pianist Florian Weber and Romanian bassist Decebal Badila, he takes a sometimes swinging and sometimes impressionistic approach to these tunes, some of which are very familiar but are here rendered in unfamiliar ways. Recommended as much for Weber's contributions as for Whigham's, though all three players are excellent." --CD Hotlist, April 2015
