One of my favorite recordings of 2012 was Finger-Songwriter, by the Jeremy Siskind Trio, an album influenced by the chamber music of Norma Winstone and the writings of favorite authors. Whether moody or upbeat, the beauty expressed by this trio was staggering at times, heartbreaking at others.
The trio has begun putting out some home studio videos as they ramp up to their new recording. Scheduled for release in early 2015 on the Brooklyn Jazz Underground label, the trio of Siskind-Harms-Pino will also feature guest appearances by Kurt Elling, Peter Eldridge, and Kendra Shank. I was lucky enough to hear two tracks from the new one, and it’s already got me in serious fanboy mode.
For today’s video, they perform the song “Linda,” which was co-written by Siskind and Peter Eldridge.
Your video personnel: Jeremy Siskind (piano), Nancy Harms (vocals), and Lucas Pino (bass clarinet).
Here’s a link to a video from the same session, this for the song “Kneel.”
Have a great Sunday!
