Ek Safar is a trio composed of Nicolas Schulze on piano, Heiner Stilz on clarinet, and Soumitra Paul on tabla, and their new CD is called "One Journey (Double Moon Records 2013). Double Moon is an imprint of Challenge Records of Germany, and this is part of a series labeled as Jazz Thing: Next Generation Volume 45.
And so it goes, ten beautiful pieces that provide an air of restrained beauty. All are taken at a mid-tempo at the fastest, and the dynamics never go beyond a mezzo-forte, so the entire set is incredibly soothing with wonderfully woven legato melodies traded between a clarinet hardly ever reaching into its upper register and a piano peacefully rolling out melodies and accompaniment. The tabla is omnipresent but restrained as well.
I am in love with this recording and recommend it across the board to any listener of any jazz persuasion.
