Christoph Adams has a distinctive touch on the piano and a fluent imagination which I have admired for some time. His compositions here beautifully demonstrate the Trio's invention and interaction and I recommend this music highly !'
'I'm very impressed with the inventiveness of your compositions and especially the sensitivity of your phrasing and touch.'
'I love the Christoph Adams Trio, its one of my favourite trios ever. This is a trio of integrated musicians that breath as one.
Space is the keynote here . It's been said that what's not played is as important as what's played. Christoph has plenty of 'chops' but uses his technique to shape space and time in such magical ways: His compositions are gems of rare beauty.
Having had the pleasure of playing with Paul Bley and Bill Evans, I hear Christoph's influences from these great players. He has developed a style that is totally his, taking space, time and touch from Paul and Bill and turning it into something that for me is unique to Christoph. Ed and Ernst play with Christoph in an almost psychic way, ESP is happening all the time. There are so many beautiful feelings and interplay that on repeated hearing new moments emerge. There is a deeply romantic essence underlying this music, tunes like Metamorphosis and Ulysses Theme stay in my mind. A night in Bongolia is a wild latinesque tune with Ernst's special Latin feeling, and his brush work I've always dug.
I love this trio, everything is a joy and..........WOW!'
