When Ignasi Terraza Trio's In A Sentimental Groove was released on CD in 2006, it became a huge hit among the Japanese jazz fans who love high-quality piano trio music. The Spanish -- or Catalonian to be more precise -- pianist's break-out album captured their imagination with an attractive mix of traditional melodies, jazz standards and original compositions, played in a straight-ahead, no-frills, honest style. The sound quality of the recording was highly praised as well.
Now, the people at DIW Records have released this celebrated album as a great-sounding vinyl record. Pressed on a super-heavy 200-gram vinyl, this limited-edition record sounds even better than the CD! This is a great piano trio album: straight-ahead jazz with a Spanish twist. A solid recommendation for fans of piano jazz and audiophiles!
