Album Notes
Nominated for the 2010 Jagermeister Independent Music Award - Best Independent Jazz Release.

“For seventy absorbing minutes, the trio captures the ear, providing thrilling evidence of a stellar contemporary trio to rank among the best... Odysseys succeeds on every level... and this fine trio statement whets the appetite for what lies ahead.” - allaboutjazz.com (USA)

“This music effortlessly accomplishes the difficult balance between the cerebral and the visceral. Odysseys is a gem.” - Music Forum (Australia)

“The album provides further proof, if any were necessary, that Winkelman occupies a truly unique and important space as a contemporary composer, improviser and bandleader.” - Extempore online (Australia)

**** “There is nothing predictable here. Most fascinating is the way Winkelman, with his fluid attack, can shift so seamlessly between moods.” - The Age Green Guide (Australia)

Odysseys is the latest album from the award winning Ben Winkelman Trio.

Following the critically acclaimed The Spanish Tinge (2007 AIR Award winner for Best Independent Jazz Release) and Stomps, Pieces & Variations (2006 Australian Jazz Bell Award nominee for Best Classic Jazz Album), the Ben Winkelman Trio continues to explore new possibilities for the jazz piano trio.

Odysseys’ nine original compositions showcase the breadth of Winkelman’s musical interests, including his enthusiasm for Cuban and Brazilian rhythms, resulting in a warm and diverse soundscape.

The title refers to the two title tracks The Seven Odyssey and The Five Odyssey - long form compositions based around claves (Cuban rhythmic cells) in seven four and five four time.

The Ben Winkelman Trio are: Ben Winkelman – piano, Sam Anning – bass, Ben Vandewal – drums.

Let yourself be immersed in these captivating rhythms and beautiful melodies.

Odysseys out now on Jazzhead.

Over the last five years the Ben Winkelman Trio has toured extensively nationally and internationally, and has appeared at many of the national jazz and music festivals and on ABC TV.
