Trio Pipeline - Kakuan Suite [We Insist! Records]

Released via the ever active imprint that is We Insist! Records on December 18th, 2k20 is "Kakuan Suite", the new ten track longplay effort conceived by Giancarlo Nino Locatelli, Andrea Grossi and Cristiano Calcagnile under their conjunctional alias Trio Pipeline. Performed on a setting of instruments consisting of clarinet variations, double bass as well as drums and percussion pieces following a storyline which we admittedly fail to fully grasp even though it's outlined and laid out in the accompanying press sheet the album goes down a stripped down, more traditional Jazz-lane with a slightly noir'esque undertone whilst drifting off into dynamic uptempo improvisations in pieces like "Roti" or "Orti" without touching base with the more extreme ends of the FreeJazz / Improv spectrum which surely makes the entire "Kakuan Suite" accessible for a broader audience and the entire album a proper companion for a Sunday afternoon listening session, preferrably accompanied by a glass of brandy and a quality conversation.
