Album Remarks & Appraisals:
The Schlippenbach Trio has worked together as a unit for around forty-five (!) years. Their magic chemistry is founded on intuitive listening and interaction - the ability to respond in an instant - and on the match between their characters, each adding to the whole as well as challenging each other - a stroke of fortune. The spectrum of performances on "Features" covers a range from furore to elegy. It extends from energetic, forward-thrusting pieces via cool, calm, ambling passages and ballad moods to submersion in sound, in silence. (Excerpt from Bert Noglik's liner notes)
