All but #9 are original compositions by pianist Routenberg. One sign of a good group is that musicians’ performances stand out but never “poke” out. The smaller the group, the harder it becomes. This trio is on the money. Effortless and in command of the music. Routenberg’s music offers a nice array of contemplitude (1,8), juxtaposed tonalities (5),and rhythmic play (2,3).
