On his sophomore album, Countdown, vibraphonist Simon Moullier ups the ante from the high bar that he set on his impressive 2020 debut, Spirit Song. Comprising separate sessions from 2017 and May 2020, Spirit Song projected what Moullier describes as a “sci-fi” aura, revealing his extreme chops, capacious improvisational imagination, and mastery of the art of molding musical narrative via composition, arrangement, orchestration and production.

Moullier, showcases these attributes on Countdown, an individualistic, erudite acoustic trio encounter with Luca Alemanno on bass and Jongkuk (“J.K.”) Kim on drums. Moullier says, as an homage to “the great composers and pillars of jazz.” [...]
