This is Oe's first trio album. He challenges to make "Senri Jazz" with Ari Hoenig (ds) and Matt Clohesy (b). Oe's pop sense blossoms in jazz. / This is Oe's first trio album. He takes on the challenge of a new kind of jazz that can be called "Senri Jazz" with Ari Hoenig (ds) and Matt Clohesy (b). A much-talked-about work in which Oe's pop sense blossoms in the world of jazz. It rose to #38 in Radio Chart (JAZZ WEEK). - Senri Oe was all set to roll on Hmmm, the pianist's first ever piano, bass and drums trio project with drummer Ari Hoenig and bassist Matt Clohesy. Oe's clever song titles speak to the blend of whimsy and introspection/reflection he brings to the collection. He intersperses his three brief, beautiful and graceful piano pieces - two interludes ("Freshening Up," "When Life Was A Pizza Party") and a postlude ("A Fireplace") - among six lively, swinging gems that showcase Senri's spirited, often lighthearted yet powerfully percussive trademark piano style as he interacts with the dynamics-filled grooves created by Hoenig and Clohesy. The opening track "ReVision" is divine elegant funk, with jazzy flourishes and snappy interaction between drums and piano. "Poignant Kisses" is a lively, buoyant romp featuring some of Oe's most freewheeling playing, spunky jamming by the principals and a bouncy bass solo. The easy swinging, deeply soulful "Indoor Voices" mixes moments of joy and sorrow, with both moods reflecting Senri's belief that our inner voices always offer us clues that take us to the next level in our lives. The trio brings touches of sensual exotica to "Bikini," an up-tempo, free-flowing samba with percussive accents and alternating dark chords and high-end piano dynamics. The rambunctious showstopper of the set is "Orange Desert," a funky, vamp-driven barnburner written by Oe as he crossed the California desert at sunset with his tiny dog, on his way to Los Angeles to study percussion with the legendary Peter Erskine.
