Album review: Jim Blomfield Trio, Wave Forms And Sea Changes (Pig)

 

Heard in full flow, pianist Blomfield sounds as fully formed as any of his better-known UK peers, with an emphatically equal-handed, densely chromatic style that swings hard on Latin-inflected originals like “Return of the Easton Walk” and “Rum Thing”, ably backed by Roshan Wijetunge on bass and Mark Whitlam on drums.

A more experimental side is less successfully expressed, but when he swings, everything works.
