Review by admireArt
3 stars A nod to traditional Jazz trios & a wink to Dave Brubeckīs legacy.

An uncommon fresh set of songs, The Hierophant (2019), a nine track release, is at mid distance from John Zornīs usually iconoclastic works. Its concept is based on 9 of the Tarotīs deck major arcana figures.

Expect clean, adventurous and virtuosity splashed performances by Trevor Dunn on bass, Brian Marsellaīs keys & Kenny Wollesen drumming, where as expected the piano is the frontman, nevertheless John Zornīs compositions offer a fair share for all three musicians to display their undeniable skills.

As for the music itself it has its bright, mid dark and pitch black tones, all according to the card represented by.

The blend between John Zornīs Avant Garde Jazz styling and its more traditional structures is well balanced therefore it all sounds and feels natural and coherent, thus the final result offers a rich variety of moods and colors.
