 Notes & Reviews
 
Celebrated as an artist of fierce imagination and singular vision, Ken Berman's daring new release vigorously navigates the terrain between tradition and innovation. Berman's acclaimed trio, featuring Kai Eckhardt and Akira Tana, reach new heights of kinetic interplay and lyricism as they explore the realms of possibility in improvisation. A follow-up to the trio's highly praised Looking Forward ('One of the ten best and most important albums of 2010' - Jazz Times), Sound Poetry was born out of Berman's friendship with the late poet Eythan Klamka (1967- 2011), and builds on Klamka's notion that 'any good musician is a sound poet.' Containing tributes to Billy Strayhorn, Bob Dylan, Bill Frisell, Langston Hughes and Bill Evans among others, Berman creates a poetic soundscape full of 'delicate sensuality and brilliance' (Le Monde).
