The Face Of Mount Molehill

The Face Of Mount Molehill by Neil Cowley Trio
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Naim Jazz
Neil Cowley's Trio can't ever be accused of understatement, with a catalog filled with fistfuls of rock-inspired piano swells and four-on-the-floor backbeats. The skeleton of Mount Molehill follows these traditions, but the trio adds some strings and spacey guitar effects for a (slightly) more atmospheric result. The greatest success is in "Mini Ha Ha," where a loop of a child's laugh and some arching strings add a surreal texture. It's nothing for jazz purists and a bit shy on artistic complexity, but suggests that Cowley and company might be heading into deeper waters.
