by The Pierre Hurel Trio

Faithful to the Jazz piano trio tradition, yet modern and to the point, the music sets a unique mood inspired by love, Paris, longing, and the exploration of the many facets and contradictions that make one completely unique.

Album Notes
Jazz journalist Virginia Schaefer wrote in ”Hurel's compositions and playing show the influence of European classical music, particularly of the romantic and impressionistic eras. In his playing, Hurel projects a natural grace, easygoing on the surface but precise and focused at the core.” A few years ago, Mr. Hurel was described by the Boston Globe's David Wildman as "The extraordinary-local-but-Paris-born pianist." Over the last few years, Pierre Hurel's reputation has continued to grow and his trio made the Boston Globe's short list of the 10 Best Shows of 2003 along side Norah Jones and Dave Brubeck, among others. Reviewing one of his performances, Steve Greenlee wrote in the Boston Globe "Hurel is one of Boston's real gems. His style is impressionistic and adventurous, coming off somewhere between Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett ... The Pierre Hurel Trio is Boston's most sensitive working group."
