Gideon van Gelder // Perpetual
Recorded in fall of 2010 and released June 1st on Kindred Spirits Records (Europe and US) and P-Vine (Japan). Featuring Becca Stevens on vocals, Lucas Pino on tenor, Lars Dietrich on alto, Rick Rosato on bass and Flin van Hemmen on drums. Also released as a special edition vinyl EP in the winter of 2011 on Positive and Focused Records/Kindred Spirits.
'Gideon van Gelder stimulates the mind and the ear with Perpetual ... The shifts in mood and rhythm throughout the entire set are both thoughtful and thought-provoking... The young artists perform remarkably, the piercing statement of rising alto saxophonist Lars Dietrich, on the mesmeric title track, incorporating elaborate yet subtle execution. Stevens' airy vocalizations are heavenly in "Lullaby" as her voice dances in harmony with the piano, before Van Gelder and Pino offer their own deliberations on the lofty theme. Intuitive, balanced, and symmetrical; it is a perfect example of Van Gelder's writing.' Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz
