Investigations is the new album from 31 year old German pianist Pablo Held and his long standing trio featuring bassist, Robert Landfermann and drummer, Jonas Burgwinkel. With a new home on the British imprint Edition Records, the release of Investigations marks a change in the trajectory of the trio’s journey that has garnered the attention and acclaim of audiences and critics throughout Europe and beyond. Crafted with alluring elegance, lyricism and sophistication, Investigations is an album that perfectly blends tradition with modernity, familiarity with exploration and poised nuance with passion and energy.
Pablo Held is an artist of talent, maturity and sensibility, aware of tradition yet continually looking forward in search of something new. The Pablo Held Trio is exceptional in both its conception and execution of blurring the boundaries of composition and improvisation, their abstract, empathic musical conversations coalescing into stories that take tender, serene, and fiery turns. All three of them are master musicians, adventurous spirits and investigators of new music discovery. After 12 years of touring, 9 highly acclaimed records and remarkable collaborations with jazz greats like John Scofield or Chris Potter, Investigations is the next step in the trio’s development.
