The Aki Rissanen Trio, featuring Antti Lötjönen on bass and Teppo Mäkynen on drums, are one of the great European piano trios of the last few years. Over their last 3 albums, Amorandom, Another North and Art in Motion, their collective sound has grown to include repetitive and hypnotic hooks bound with a vibrant European Classical Music influence, an Electronic Dance music aesthetic and their own approach to Nordic Jazz. This live album, recorded over a tour of Germany and Finland, clearly demonstrates how far the powerful interplay between the three Finnish musicians has developed.
Beautiful recorded, Trio Live is playful yet serious, progressive yet full of tradition and open yet structured. It’s a wholesome live album from a band with a longevity and command that proves they are well on their way to becoming one of the great European piano trios.
