ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Some quotes from the national and international press:


I found that everything I heard was more than accurate. He possesses great imagination; energy with comtemporary vision.
(Billy Hart, drummer)

I was familiar with Robert's music and I think he combines a true sense of tradition with his own concept.
As well, he has a good group to support him. A wonderful pianist.
(Dave Liebman, saxophonist)

A thrilling and expressive performance of this vibrant European jazzgroup!
(Michiel Borstlap, pianist)


He is an extraordinarily complete pianist, and the beautiful grand piano at the Bimhuis has rarely been given such a heavy and satisfying workout....
(Frank van Herk, Volkskrant)

Piano player Robert Rook is a virtuoso. Maybe we can call this former mathematician a 'genius'. Never heard a pianist perform with such complete devotion.
(Hans Dijkstal, Financieel Dagblad)

What a great creator, what a great technique!
He reminds the listeners of Keith Jarret, Ahmad Jamal and Herbie Hancock but gives every piece his own dynamic thrilling interpretation.
Really excellent.
(Klaas Koopman, Pianoworld)


His genius piano playing takes us totally into his world and we forget ourselves completely.
(Takashi Yamamoto, Japanese Jazz Magazine)


...and phrasing that, down to the smallest nuances, sounds like the only right one for that moment.
(Frank van Herk, Volkskrant)

Rook reminds me of the better sides of 'Herbie Hancock'.
(Phillip McNeely, Cadence Magazine, USA)

There is not much more one could wish for, except this:
Can somebody get the Robert Rook trio onto a Norwegian stage as soon as possible.

(Tor Hammerø, Noors Jazz Magazine)
