||Tryptych is the latest album
on 33 records by pianist and composer Andrea Vicari. Having previously
written for big bands "Suburban Gorillas", "New
Perspectives", "The Vortex Foundation Big Band"
and a quintet, "Lunar Spell"; Andrea now takes on the
challenge of the piano trio. The music is a combination of Andrea
Vicari's "atmospheric and original" (TIME
OUT) compositions, and her unique arrangements of classic
jazz standards; including "Bewitched", "Fly Me
to the Moon", and "Someday My Prince will Come". The trio features brilliant virtuoso
drummer Sebastian Rochford, an integral member of "Acoustic
Ladyland" whose own group "Polar Bear" is making
waves with their CD on Babel "Dim Lit". Seb
won the BBC Jazz award in the "Rising Star" category.
