Letting Go

by Jeff Colella Trio

The mood throughout most of the album is one of relaxed tranquility, with delicacies and felicitous piano voicings throughout. Bill Evans is an almost inevitable influence on a piano player such as Colella, but not an overwhelming one.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Downbeat
By Paul DeBarros

That beckoning, surging sea Bill Evans plunged himself into sometimes drowned his followers, but Jeff
Colella us a sure and creative swimmer. Eschewing standard roles, bassist Eric von Essen improvises
counter-melodies and drummer Kendall Kay plays with the time without losing it in this highly
integrated trio. From the watery introspection of “Peace” and crystalline ring of the title tune, both by
Colella, to the Jarrett-like vamps of “With The Spirit Of Joy,” this is an altogether attractive and
appealing album, with only a few lapses into pure prettiness.

London Jazz Journal
By Mike Shera

Jeff Colella is a new name to me, but certainly one I shall rememb er. He and his colleagues have
produced an album of delightfully melodic piano jazz. The mood throughout most of the album is one of
relaxed tranquility, with delicacies and felicitous piano voicings throughout. Bill Evans is an almost
inevitable influence on a piano player such as Colella, but not an overwhelming one. Oddly enough,
Colella’s tune Peace is really quite a turbulent track, with strongly propulsive drumming. Eric von Essen
contributed Ripvagen 9, Harri’s Mood and With You, whilst Spirit of Joy was written by Curtis Robinson
Jr. Monk’s Dream is a delight, with a few Monkish runs, and lots of interesting things that Monk
wouldn’t have played. This is also the hardest swinging tune on the set. Jeff Colella’s other composition
on the album is the final track, a most impressive ballad, quite outstanding both in its composition and
execution.

All modern piano enthusiasts are urged to obtain this album without further delay.
