The 'Annette' in question is the obscure but always fascinating composer-singer-pianist Annette Peacock, formerly married to both the bassist Gary Peacock and the pianist Paul Bley, who are joined here by the trumpeter Franz Koglmann for a programme of their ex-wife's tunes. Bley has been exploring the likes of 'Blood', 'Touching' and 'Mister Joy' for most of his long career, but still manages to find something new within their strange, elliptical, allusive contours. Which raises the question: how about a new Annette Peacock album, somebody?
