The latest from the Mark Wade Trio gives the sense that they’re really settling in as a working unit. There’s a confidence to their method of revealing the lovely melody to “Autumn Leaves” time and again that’s emblematic of Moving Day, and how their flight patterns are locked in place. From a rhythmic perspective, the bassist is the conversational bond between pianist Tim Harrison and drummer Scott Neumann. For the most part, that bond manifests as the shepherd to a focused message, but even when the method of engagement is one of interplay between musicians, an enduring unity shapes the flow of dialog.
This is straight-ahead modern jazz done right. Nothing groundbreaking, nothing experimental, and everything to like.
